WHIPPANY, N.J., Nov. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Suburban Propane Partners, L.P. (NYSE: SPH), a nationwide distributor of propane, renewable propane, renewable natural gas, fuel oil and related products and services, as well as a marketer of natural gas and electricity and investor in low carbon fuel alternatives, today united with Baltimore Hunger Project, a Timonium, Maryland-based nonprofit, to sponsor and assemble weekend food packages for students in the greater Baltimore region facing food insecurity. The donation is part of the Company's SuburbanCares® community-giving platform.
"Suburban Propane is honored to assist Baltimore Hunger Project in its critical mission to provide students with weekend meals," said Nandini Sankara, Spokesperson, Suburban Propane. "As a 95-year-old company with a footprint across 42 states, we understand the importance of taking care of those in our local communities and know that without the work of critical non-profits like the Baltimore Hunger Project, many area kids would go hungry."
Suburban Propane's donation provided more than 800 meal packages. Each take-home package includes proteins, vegetables, fruits and even utensils to help students over the weekend period when they don't have access to school meals.
"Unfortunately, food insecurity continues to rise across the country and here in the greater Baltimore area we've experienced a 30 percent increase over last year," said Lynne Kahn, Executive Director, Baltimore Hunger Project. "We will feed an estimated 2,500 students in the city and county each week in more than 50 different schools. We rely on the generosity and support of area businesses and appreciate Suburban Propane's donation and time to help feed our local kids."
"It is great to see Suburban Propane and Baltimore Hunger Project team up to assemble food packages that will be distributed to children in need.
