If you’re not headed to a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, take the family to Baltimore Hunger Project for a morning of giving back!

Founded by Baltimore mom Lynne B. Kahn, Baltimore Hunger Project is feeding young bodies and minds, one weekend meal at a time. 

Kids who receive meals during the week at school also need to eat on Saturday and Sunday. That’s where Baltimore Hunger Project comes in. The non-profit serves “take home” food bags to 600 children across eighteen Baltimore City and Baltimore County schools every weekend this school year. Volunteers power the initiative — handling everything from running the front desk, to packing bags, to writing notes of encouragement, to making meal pack deliveries.

You can help! Head to their Cockeysville warehouse on Thanksgiving morning during their Open House to learn more about what they do and to create cards of encouragement to include in the weekend food packs. Participants must be 10 or older.

Planning to join them? Send them a message through Facebook and let them know you’re coming!

(PS… love the mug? Lynne’s mom made it for her!)
