Food Resources of Washington County recently received more than $11,000 from Martin's Food Markets' annual Bag Hunger campaign.

Other local recipients from the campaign were the Western Maryland Food Bank, which received more than $7,000, and Loaves and Fishes of Martinsburg, W.Va., which received more than $4,000.

Martin's Food Markets and Giant Food Stores will donate $500,000 to fight hunger through the Bag Hunger campaign.

During the two-week in-store campaign from Sept. 6 to 19, customers were asked to donate $1 at checkout to benefit regional food banks and local pantries. Martin's vendor parties also contributed $135,000 in support of the campaign.

More than 85 regional food banks, local pantries and soup kitchens benefited from this year's campaign.
