At least 74,461 children in Baltimore suffer from food insecurity, particularly during the hours when school meal programs are out of session. Hunger can have serious health risks on the body and mind, leaving kids who want to excel in school at a disadvantage without adequate nutrition.
To help fight back against weekend hunger, the Baltimore Hunger Project provides over 350 nutritious meals to children in fourteen schools across Baltimore City and Baltimore County by means of weekend food packages. Baltimore Hunger Project is determined to reduce the hunger struggle throughout Baltimore communities, and encourage academic success for these deserving children.
