Help to Alleviate Hunger on World Food Day

Greetings,
October 16th is World Food Day and in acknowledgment the Waldorf School of Baltimore will be hosting a weeklong food drive. Starting Monday the 15th you will find a large box in the lobby in which you can drop off any variety of non-perishable foods. The drive will be held from Monday thru Friday, and your offerings will be taken to the Maryland Food Bank to feed Baltimore’s hungry.
All non-perishable food is welcome, and below is a list of the most needed items (including non-food items):

Meat and protein

  • canned meat, ham and chicken
  • peanut butter
  • macaroni and cheese
  • canned stews
  • canned tuna, salmon and sardines

In addition,  you can donate food virtually (and double your food purchasing power) through the Maryland Food Bank’s WEBSITE.
Our school’s Food Drive can also be found on this site: http://www.worldfooddayusa.org/events (just zoom in on Maryland). There you will find other national efforts honoring World Food Day.
