Summer Meals Program Addresses Food Insecurity in Baltimore

The Baltimore City Department of Housing & Community Development (DHCD) is addressing food insecurity by offering free meals to Baltimore youth throughout the summer.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) will provide children ages 18 and under with a nutritional breakfast and lunch five days a week during while schools are closed.

Over 200 locations along with mobile routes will increase youth access to healthy meals.

DHCD Assistant Commissioner Jim Hicks joins Gabe Ortis to discuss the program and additional resources available for Baltimore residents.
