Helping Students Facing Food Insecurity in Partnership with Baltimore Hunger Project
This week Suburban Propane employees collaborated with Baltimore Hunger Project, a nonprofit organization based in Timonium, Maryland, to sponsor and assemble food packages for students in the greater Baltimore region who are facing food insecurity.
Organizations like the Baltimore Hunger Project note an increase in food insecurity, both nationwide and specifically in the greater Baltimore area. Unfortunately, kids of all ages may have limited access to food or meals due to an unfortunate number of circumstances.
Suburban Propane’s donation has resulted in the provision of over 800 meal packages. Each package contains proteins, vegetables, fruits, and even utensils, ensuring that students have access to nutritious meals during the weekend when school meals are unavailable. Suburban Propane employees were joined by Maryland state Senator Shelly Hettleman, who took part in putting together the weekend meal packs.
“It is great to see Suburban Propane and Baltimore Hunger Project team up to assemble food packages that will be distributed to children in need. Their collaboration demonstrates the positive impact of communities coming together to help serve the greater good,” said Senator Hettleman.
With a presence in 42 states and a history spanning 95 years, Suburban Propane recognizes the significance of supporting the local communities in which we operate. This initiative is part of Suburban Propane’s community-giving platform, SuburbanCares® which actively provides aid and volunteers by partnering with organizations in their critical mission.
Executive Director of Baltimore Hunger Project, Lynne Kahn, says, “We will feed an estimated 2,500 students in the city and county each week in more than 50 different schools. We rely on the generosity and support of area businesses and appreciate Suburban Propane’s donation and time to help feed our local kids.”
Since 2014, the Baltimore Hunger Project has been addressing the issue of childhood hunger by collaborating with social workers and guidance counselors to identify and assist students in need. Furthermore, they strive to raise awareness about the impact of hunger within their local community.
