The Baltimore Hunger Project (BHP) serves to feed homeless women and children through various sponsors such as Dulaney’s Key Club, Rho Kappa and National Honor Society (NHS).

Students work to create food bags and write notes of encouragement for the Baltimore Hunger Project’s Weekend Backpacking program. Every weekend, this program provides free nutritious meals for students in need. 

Historically, Dulaney High School (DHS) students have helped put together food bags containing meals that the BHP can give out through various events and clubs. Through a card-making event, Dulaney’s NHS and Key Club wrote notes of encouragement to put in these meal bags as a way to show the kids that there is always someone caring for them. Senior Aine Heron, a member of Key Club’s district board, has worked to lead these card-making and food packaging events for two years and has contributed to Dulaney’s continued partnership with BHP.

“Knowing how impactful these little notes are on the kids makes me want to let more people feel the same feelings I do towards the organization and keep those partnerships going with Dulaney,” Heron said. 

These card-making events are simple opportunities to get involved, and impactful to all the kids who receive them. Rho Kappa also leads plenty of food packing events where hundreds of bags are packed by club members. The BHP has provided over 2,100 meals within the Baltimore area and Dulaney students have worked hard to pack a large amount of those meals.

“[We packaged] 500 bags and about 15 of us were making them. So 15 of us packaged 500 bags in 2 hours.” Heron said.

The BHP has been a popular sponsor to Dulaney, and the students seem to enjoy these events with over 30-35 students showing up per event. The impact that these meals and notes have made on these kids has led Dulaney to continue working with them over the past few years, and plan to continue.
