WILLIAMSPORT, Md. - The Maryland Food Bank got a welcome donation; Dot Foods presented them with a $50,000 check Thursday. 

Dot Foods is donating more than $400,000 to food banks nationwide. 

Organizers estimate these donations should help create about 3.7 million meals for people in need. Something they say the community will use. 

"We generally don't see big checks like this in Western Maryland. It's a special day for us. We have en extremely generous community. A lot more individual and smaller contributions which helps make up our budget, and help us meet the need. So to have a big check we can do big things with it," said Matt Thompson, manager.
