Maryland Hunger Solutions Applauds State Legislature for Passing
Key Anti-Hunger Legislation

Statement Attributable to Michael J. Wilson, Director, Maryland Hunger Solutions

BALTIMORE — April 17, 2023 — Maryland Hunger Solutions applauds the Maryland General Assembly for the passage of several pieces of legislation aimed at reducing hunger and supporting the health and well-being of all residents. Key bills passed include:

These bills will help address critical needs in Maryland while also addressing systemic inequities. Yet opportunities to further reduce hunger were missed. These include ensuring every child in the state has access to school meals at no charge, expanding campus hunger programs, and helping to address the hunger cliff resulting from hundreds of millions of dollars in reduced SNAP benefits – which were temporarily boosted during the pandemic – for over 600,000 of our neighbors. Clearly, Maryland policy makers have taken steps in the right direction, but they still have work to build a Maryland that’s free from hunger.
