Hampstead Hill Community Dinner

A Baltimore Times article on May 30, 2008 featured last month's Community Dinner at Hampstead Hill Academy, which celebrated healthy eating and food education.

“It's a wonderful thing for our school and community,” said Matthew Carpenter, Assistant Principal.

According to Principal Matt Hornbeck, who also mentioned the school's organic garden, spoke on how the program has brought together families from all walks of life.

It's neat when the food program can bring all of those people together, because food is the great common element everyone shares,” said Hornbeck.

“Taste of Baltimore,” the theme of the evening's dinner, brought dozens of enthusiastic parents, teachers, children and community advocates, tasting healthy food treats that were donated by area restaurants and prepared and served by students to honor the work of the Food Studies Program, a grassroots food education curriculum.
