Living in a Food Desert

Did you know that 1 in 5 Baltimore residents lives in a food desert? Are you shocked? So were our youth producers in the Baltimore Speaks Out! program at the Reisterstown Road branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. In response to the food inequalities plaguing Baltimore City, they set out to learn why it is difficult to find affordable healthy food in their neighborhoods.

This group of talented young people interviewed Laura Flamm from Baltimore City Health Department, who explained that health disparities in Baltimore are driven by inequities in access to healthy food. Our youth producers discovered that initiatives like the mobile market, the grocery delivery program, and the school lunch program are working to bring healthy food to food deserts. To learn more about access to healthy food in Baltimore, and actions you can take too, watch “Living in a Food Desert” today!

The Ripple Effect

The Ripple Effect was created by students in the Baltimore Speaks Out! Program at the Reisterstown Road branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library in the Spring of 2013. Students in the program wanted to shed light on the impact of water cleanliness in the Chesapeake Bay and our local streams, and what we can do to make a difference in our communities.

In Our Shoes- Baltimore Youth Speak Out About Their Challenges & Joys


“This semester we have created a film about our experiences as young people in Baltimore- about what challenges us and what makes us proud. We want young people to watch this film so that they can know that everyone has a challenge in their life and that they are not alone. We want adults to watch our film and understand that kids have issues too so that they can stop being so hard on the young people in their lives. Most of all, we hope others can watch this film and feel confident that you can overcome what challenges you in your life and celebrate the things that make you happy!”
– BSO Herring Run Youth Producers & Lead BSO instructor Sarah Milinski
