“BALTIMORE (WBFF) – With the support of local churches and other religious organizations, community partners and an army of volunteers, the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) Midtown Campus’ Chef Connie Johnson organized the first annual “All Walks of Faith” Senior Feeding Summit to provide 3,000 healthy cooked meals for senior citizens in Baltimore City.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic many seniors are unable to leave their homes and don’t have access to healthy meals.
Local churches, mosques, synagogues, Jehovah’s Witnesses congregations and community groups involved in this effort reportedly picked up meals to deliver to seniors throughout the city.
Drive-through and walk-up service were available as Johnson and her team are preparing the food at Forest Park Senior High School.
Johnson is well-known for her culinary program, Vegetable Time, at Calvin Rodwell Elementary School in Baltimore, which was recognized by former First Lady Michelle Obama and featured in the Weight of the Nation documentary on HBO.
She serves as Supervisor of Dietary Patient Services at the UMMC Midtown Campus and earlier this year was an executive chef at Super Bowl LIV. Johnson says now, she is focusing her philanthropy on feeding senior citizens in need.”
