This report, a detailed landscape assessment of employment opportunities in Baltimore City, aims to guide the implementation of our Workforce Development (WFD) Partnerships pilot program, which was created to build pathways out of hunger for Baltimore-area residents.
How We Fight Hunger
Now more than ever, we have proven that the food assistance safety net we’ve built over the last 42 years can withstand any crisis. Our expertise combined with a statewide network of thousands of community partners makes it possible to meet the immediate needs of food-insecure Marylanders while simultaneously working to create pathways out of hunger.
We are helping Maryland recover by feeding people, strengthening communities, and ending hunger for more Marylanders. Join us.
