Community and Philanthropy Investing Together
A networking event and keynote address hosted by the Maryland Philanthropy Network
Maryland Philanthropy Network members are invited to a briefing by the Baltimore City Public Schools Food and Nutrition Services Team and Maryland’s farms to schools lead about the current state of food and nutrition in City Schools and efforts to transform into a system that delivers healthier, more nutritious and tasty food to its 85,000 students.
With more than 466,000 Marylanders food insecure , does it matter where the food is grown or whether it is processed or fresh? We will discuss what the research says about the quality/quantity debate, what efforts are being made in Maryland to address food quality and quantity; and what can be done to achieve more of both.
