The medical student-led volunteer project that provides Thanksgiving dinner to Baltimore residents is celebrating its 30th year.
Sponsored by the University of Maryland, Baltimore USGA
The Project Feast Fund supports an annual volunteer project by University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) students that is now in its 30th year. The students organize Project Feast to provide Thanksgiving dinner to Baltimore's underprivileged communities.
In 2018, students served nearly 850 dinners in four hours. Students served more than 600 pounds of turkey, hundreds of slices of pie, and dozens of trays of mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, and corn. UMSOM students also provided health screenings, including blood pressure and glucose monitoring, at the event.
This event helps to serve the homeless and needy individuals each year at Booker T. Washington Middle School in Baltimore, an outreach effort that demonstrates the connection UMSOM students feel with their local community.
The 2019 event will take place at Booker T. Washington Middle School on Thursday, Nov. 28, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sponsors for this year are the University of Maryland School of Medicine Medical Alumni Association, the University of Maryland School of Medicine Student Council, and Hungry Harvest.
