Project Feast is a student organization at the UMSOM that puts together a free Thanksgiving meal on Thanksgiving Day, November 24th from 10am-3pm
at Booker T. Washington Elementary School for the homeless and underserved population of Baltimore, Maryland. In addition to providing a meal, we also connect our guests to a variety of community resources and have a large collection of donated clothing, blankets, toiletries, and pantry staples available to meet their more immediate needs. For the past 26 years, this event has been held on Thanksgiving Day at Booker T. Washington Elementary School in West Baltimore, and has fed hundreds of people. Last year, we served approximately 500 guests with the help of 175 volunteers!
Volunteer: help us transport & store donations, cook turkeys, advertise in the community, & volunteer serving the day of the event.
Host a screening: we especially are looking for student groups interested in partnering with Project Feast for the day of the event to offer helpful community resources and/or health screenings such as blood pressure screening, medication guidance, etc.
Donate: gently used clothing, non-perishable food items, & toiletries to the collection boxes around campus, such as those in SMC Lobby & medical school lobby.
Sponsor: direct donations for the cost of a turkey, meal, coat, or any amount are always welcome and appreciated. Donors can visit tinyurl.com/gg5wlwf
