and you haven't had a meal since Friday.

Hunger is a reality for 500+ children in Caroline County.

We're working to solve the problem.


We are working to end childhood hunger in Caroline County.

Hungry children struggle to learn and consistently under-perform their peers. This has lifelong implications that limit their potential. Ensuring that our children have access to the nutrition they need will help them grow up to be healthy and productive members of our community.
