Governor’s Office for Children
USDA Hunger-Free Communities Implementation Grantee
Governor’s Office for Children (GOC) proposes to work with Catholic Charities, Maryland Department of Human Resources (DHR), Maryland Food Bank, Maryland Hunger Solutions, Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE), and SHARE Food Network on behalf of the Partnership. Each of these partners is an active member of the Partnership to End Childhood Hunger in Maryland. The Partnership serves as the Food Policy Council for the State of Maryland and the eight target Counties and is well-suited to implement the Creating Hunger-Free Communities in Maryland
