Our partnership with End Hunger has been beneficial not only in that FBLA members benefitted End Hunger’s mission, but they also promoted awareness of the hunger crisis in the county.

Students in Northern High School’s Future Business Leaders of America organization have been working closely with End Hunger in Calvert County as part of its Partnership with Business Project. These activities have included the annual End Hunger Obstacle Run, a campaign to raise awareness for the Calvert Cash program, and a schoolwide food drive in the month leading up to Christmas, where the school raised over 850 pounds of food, or 936 food items, to donate to food pantries in the Calvert County area.

Our partnership with End Hunger has been beneficial not only in that FBLA members benefitted End Hunger’s mission, but they also promoted awareness of the hunger crisis in the county. Through the partnership with End Hunger, FBLA members have said they developed an appreciation for the group’s ambitious goals, while at the same time learning about its structure and business model.

Project coordinators Tommy O’Brien, Alissa Lambert and Christian Kincaid are thankful to have the opportunity to work with such a talented organization. We thank our FBLA advisers, Nancy Wilt and Theresa Jackson, for supervising the project and helping make it a success.
