Baltimore Hunger Project Partners with Local Museum to Further Educate the Baltimore Community on Food Insecurity

Baltimore Hunger Project is excited to announce its partnership with a local Community Museum, The Peale. The Peale located in Baltimore, MD was the first museum purposely built in the United States commissioned in 1813 by Rembrandt Peale, a member of the first family of American artists and museum pioneers. 

The Peale museum aims at providing an “accessible space to everyone, where community members and students can take creative risks, connect with other collaborators, and share stories about Baltimore and beyond.” The Peale is using its platform and resources in helping Baltimore Hunger Project to further educate the community about food insecurity and childhood hunger which impacts 1 in 4 Baltimore residents. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, food insecurity has risen tremendously from 18% to more than 20% within Baltimore City (feeding America), with 33% of children being food insecure. 

From Thursday, November 3, 2022 through Sunday, January 15, 2022 The Peale will be displaying their “A Feast In The Desert” exhibit which will showcase the artistic talents of Baltimorians while educating the community on the rising issues of food insecurity and hunger within the city. Throughout the duration of the exhibit, food donation boxes can be found in the Peale lobby where guests can drop off canned goods that will be taken to beneficiaries every 2 weeks, one of which will be Baltimore Hunger Project. To learn more about the upcoming “A Feast In The Desert” exhibit at The Peale, visit their website at www.thepeale.org.

As always, the Baltimore Hunger Project is thrilled to expand partnerships within our community in an effort to educate others on the rising issue of food insecurity and childhood hunger.
