Fighting Hunger in Baltimore and Beyond with the Baltimore Hunger Project

Fighting Hunger in Baltimore and Beyond with the Baltimore Hunger Project

By Dan Taylor, Marketing Coordinator

ELLICOTT CITY, MD- Poverty in and around Maryland is not unique compared to the rest of the country. The war on childhood poverty is ever present. That’s why Trilogy Wellness is asking its patients and guests to help donate to a worthy cause.

The Baltimore Hunger Project is teaming up with Trilogy Wellness the entire month of January through mid-February.

“To be able to pair up with a non-profit that is fighting childhood poverty daily, is an extremely rewarding program to be associated with,” said Trilogy Wellness Marketing and Sales Director, Jaime Elwood. “We have a very compassionate and warm base of patients and guests. They are always on board to help in any way they can.”

Trilogy partnered with the organization back in late November. This charity drive has allowed Trilogy to bring in over $2,000 for the Baltimore Hunger Project. The organization’s goal is to eliminate weekend childhood hunger by what’s known as the “hunger gap.” That is when children go hungry from Friday afternoon until Monday morning.

According to the Maryland Hunger Solutions, nearly 94% of Baltimore City students (71,581 children) and 66% of Baltimore County students (73,677 children) are considered food insecure and participate in the free and reduced-price meals program (FARMS). Leaders with the Baltimore Hunger Project, says this equates to more than 145,000 students in our region who may struggle with hunger when school is not in session.

Providing food not only provides nourishment that can help improve a child’s health, but also their chances of learning better when they’re not hungry.

If you donate at least $5.00, Trilogy Wellness will provide you will a $5.00 bounce back card to use during your next visit.

Please consider donating to this worthy cause the next time you stop into Trilogy Wellness. Just ask for the donation box.
