Frederick Community Competes to Pack Blessings in a Backpack Food for Children

At the annual “Race to Feed Frederick” event at Frederick Community College, seven teams raced to fill 1,800 to 2,000 bags of essential food items to support students facing hunger over the weekends.

Filling the Forgotten School Supply this School Year

This school year, we aim to provide more hunger-free weekends for kids struggling with food insecurity.
