B & Dee’s Baltimore Love, a nonprofit organization in Baltimore City providing support and resources for the homeless, will hold their inaugural Lunch Patrol on Sunday, August 27th, at 1 pm. The event is designed to provide brown bag lunches for the homeless in defined neighborhoods in Baltimore City. Instead of making people come to the food, this event will bring the food to them.

This first event will focus on reaching out to people in the Mount Vernon and Station North neighborhoods. There are many folks living on the streets in these areas. Some are seen every day, others live hidden behind trees and businesses.

Currently the group is accepting donations of non-perishable items, including peanut butter, jelly, single serve bags of chips and pretzel, fruit cups, granola bars, packages of mayonnaise and mustard, bottled water, canned soda, and juice boxes. More items like pre-made sandwiches will be requested as the date gets closer. Be sure to visit their Facebook event page at http://bit.ly/2vu0TI6 for event updates.

Volunteers are needed to assist with distribution in the Mount Vernon and Station North neighborhoods beginning at noon on Sunday, August 27th. Donations will be accepted and the event will be coordinated from 908 Tyson Street in Baltimore. The address is a private residence, not a business.

B & Dee’s Baltimore Love welcomes support from groups and businesses in Mount Vernon and Station North neighborhoods. Key areas for this outreach are Franklin Street (near Enoch Pratt Free Library); Howard Street; Chase Street (near Rite Aid); Mount Vernon Place at the Washington Monument; North Charles Street (from Chase Brexton northbound); Guilford Avenue; Greenmount Avenue; and North Avenue.
