Discussion Summary: As a part of the county’s ongoing efforts to improve food access and health policies impacting our communities, the county has committed to taking part in this statewide initiative to End Childhood Hunger. Governor Martin O’Malley, the Governor’s Office for Children and Share Our Strength, announced the creation of a strong new coalition to end childhood hunger in Maryland by 2015. This initiative aims to raise awareness about childhood hunger in the state, increase participation in nutrition programs that combat hunger, and has developed a robust plan with yearly goals and strategies to coordinate the work of member organizations across the state. Prince George’s County public officials are pushing for additional state funding to expand programs that will enhance their ability to improve food access.
