Meet Joe Cuddy, Vice President, Senior Business Banking Manager for Capital One‘s Greater DVM Market and weekly delivery volunteer for Glyndon Elementary. We recently asked Joe why he gives back each week to Baltimore Hunger Project.

“How do you eat an elephant…one bite at a time, of course! Seems simple enough, but think about that for a minute. Sometimes, there isn’t an elephant or a meal to eat.

Twenty-two million children receive free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program and the National School Breakfast Program. For many of these students, school meals may be the only meals they eat.

What happens when they go home over the weekend?

I choose to support Baltimore Hunger Project in their efforts because the thought of a child leaving school on a Friday afternoon to wonder where their meals will come from for the weekend is a problem I can help solve for children in my community.

I believe that everyone should take their “one bite” to help solve this elephant-sized problem for children in our communities. I appreciate Lynne B Kahn giving me and Capital One the opportunity to help children throughout the Baltimore area.”
