ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) – Gov. Martin O’Malley is commemorating the second anniversary of his administration’s efforts to alleviate childhood hunger in Maryland and, he hopes, to end it by 2015.
O’Malley said Tuesday the state is getting more meals to children from low-income homes through school programs. He says the state is providing meals to 17 percent more students than two years ago.
O’Malley says breakfast has been provided to 11,600 more children per day than two years ago.
The state formed the Partnership to End Childhood Hunger within Maryland’s borders two years ago with community groups, activists and food programs to find children at risk of hunger.
