Dear families and neighbors,
As you may have heard, every student enrolled in Baltimore City Public Schools will be receiving a non-transferable EBT card for $330 in the next few weeks. For those families who are not in need of the extra funds to pay for food, please consider donating all or some of the funds you would have spent (i.e. the amount that is offset by the EBT funds you will get) to an organization helping to support food-insecure families. See below for information on the program and on donating to the Fund for Educational Excellence, or check out their website: https://ffee.org/donate/
Many thanks for all of your generosity in the past and for continuing to support the students and families of Baltimore.
Friends of Hampden School #55
