One in eight people in Maryland, and one in four in Baltimore City, are food insecure. Many children in the Baltimore region are hungry when they arrive to school, and many have not eaten a full meal since they left school the day before.*
According to the USDA, as of 2016 there are at least 13 million children who live in food-insecure homes in the United States. Due to the pandemic, over 18 million children this year could be facing food insecurity.
Join us in a discussion with community leaders as we dialogue on current efforts and new innovative solutions to food insecurity and sustainability efforts in Baltimore.
