Morningstar Baptist Church has recognized CEA’s work with an award for “Outstanding Community Service.” It was presented to Executive Director Megan Rigos at a community event at the church on March 31.
Students from Catonsville High School’s Student Sharing Club dropped off 1,409 pounds of food to CEA on Saturday, April 1 (no fooling), and spent time shelving the food for later sorting and packing. The food drive, called Hop For Hunger, began last year when students learned that food is in short supply during the summer. They decided to replicate their Halloween food drive during the spring to help stock the shelves for summer. A big thanks to everyone who participated.

The Lambda Chi Alpha-Phi Delta UMBC chapter recently had a food drive and collected more than 100 pounds of food for CEA. Three of the fraternity brothers delivered then helped weigh the much-welcomed food.From left to right: Michael Kaaja, Stephen Cole, Daniel Diseroad.
