Kids Helping Kids Anti-Hunger Campaign

Kids Helping Kids Anti-Hunger Campaign

For almost 30 years, the Kids Helping Kids anti-hunger campaign has mobilized students in Maryland schools to raise food and funds for their hungry peers across the state. Participation in the program teaches children valuable lessons about hunger, engages them in giving, and shows them that they have the power to make a difference in their community. Managed by the Maryland Food Bank and made possible through a partnership with the Maryland State Department of Education, the Kids Helping Kids campaign has grown into a statewide movement. Last year, more than 400 schools took part in Kids Helping Kids, bringing in more than $110,000 and 415,000+ pounds of food for their local community organizations.

Dundalk High School will be participating in the Kids Helping Kids anti-hunger campaign this year from Monday October 2nd, to Friday, October 27, 2017. All donations will directly benefit local food pantries, including our small pantry here at DHS. Donations will be collected in the school social work office, Room #2176. Please contact school social worker, Ms. Certeza, scerteza@bcps.org regarding participation in the virtual food drive or monetary donations.

Food MUST be unopened. Please check expiration/best by dates.
