I first learned of the Baltimore Hunger Project in 2018 when I met its founder and Executive Director, Lynne Kahn, at Leadership Baltimore County, a program designed to bring local businesses, nonprofits, and public safety professionals together. While there, Lynne described the incredible need to help local kids with healthy eating alternatives when not in school.
Many children in our communities rely heavily on school-provided meals, which means on weekends when they are home, they may not have access to healthy food…or food at all. The work the Baltimore Hunger Project is doing is so important, ensuring our kids have healthy food to eat – a basic need many of us take for granted.
Since I first met Lynne, it’s been incredible watching her grow the Baltimore Hunger Project from serving a few schools to now feeding nearly 1,500 kids in over 25+ schools! Her efforts have gained not only local attention but also a national campaign sponsored by Papa John’s.
It is my honor to sponsor one child for every contract accepted from now through the end of 2021. The work of Lynne and the Baltimore Hunger Project has truly been an inspiration, and I am thrilled to be supporting her and the amazing things she is doing for our community.
