A Maryland Mystery Mom is Leaving Free Lunches out "for Anyone Who Needs It"

"Made with love by a neighborhood mom in a clean and sanitized kitchen."

Every day at 11 a.m. in Severna Park, Maryland, a mysterious good Samaritan sets out free bagged lunches for her neighbors in need amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"For anyone who needs it: I will be leaving some healthy sack lunches on this table for you if you are hungry and need to eat,” a handwritten sign reads. “Made with love by a neighborhood mom in a clean and sanitized kitchen. I will leave this table up from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m."

Speaking with the Capital Gazette, Severna Park resident Kimberly Gussow revealed that she was one of those people last week. Working from home and trying to save money, she was grateful for a free lunch of ham sandwiches, oranges, and fruit snacks for her two children.

“Times are a little bit tough,” Gussow told the Gazette. “I think it’s great everybody is stepping up to help out any way they can. This might not be a good time, but it forces everybody to slow down and reevaluate.”

Gussow told ABC News she'd like to thank the mystery mom.

"It's more than just putting a sack of lunch on the table," she said. "She’s putting goodness back into the world."
