Empowering Baltimore's Children
There are approximately 13,000 children enrolled in Maryland schools who are experiencing homelessness. In Baltimore County alone, 1 in 3 children live in poverty, making access to safe housing and healthy food an everyday struggle.
The Eat to Empower campaign was created to help fight food insecurity in Baltimore by giving more than 2 dozen restaurants and their patrons the opportunity to support the growth and education of our city’s children simply by eating. Beginning in May, restaurants in Baltimore and surrounding areas will sponsor an Eat to Empower event, from which they have pledged to contribute a portion of their sales.

Supporting Their Future
Contributions to the Eat to Empower campaign will support programs which work to make a difference on the nutrition and well-being of Baltimore’s children.
Empower4Life works with homeless and impoverished children across Baltimore. The organization works to help children experiencing homelessness develop the needed skills to be healthy, productive in school and feel empowered to overcome any challenges they face. Empower4Life is dedicated to helping every child grow strong and be successful.
The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools
The Education Foundation works to provide additional opportunities for Baltimore County Public School students and families. The money collected from the Eat to Empower campaign will be dedicated to supporting the vision of the Foundation, which is to ensure that all BCPS students have the resources to enable them to graduate globally competitive.
