Project Feast Fund A Project of School of Medicine Special Projects

The Project Feast Fund supports an annual volunteer project by University of Maryland School of Medicine students that is now in its 26th year. The students organize Project Feast to provide Thanksgiving dinner to Baltimore's underprivileged communities. Each year, students feed about 400 homeless and needy individuals at Booker T. Washington Middle School in Baltimore, an outreach effort that demonstrates the connection School of Medicine students feel with their local community.

The event is sponsored by the University Student Government Association, the Medical Alumni Association, Hungry Harvest, and the School of Medicine Student Council.
