107 years is a long time in dog years and our "building with the dog" has been standing for even longer than that. But since 1911, Federated Charities has been working to support other nonprofits and provide compassionate services to individuals and families in Frederick. The Unity Campaign supports our Community Table programming, which helps families make healthy choices and learn how to turn whole ingredients into nutritious and affordable meals. 

Federated Charities recognizes the importance of collective work and the Unity Campaign is a powerful example of how organizations working together in Frederick can capture the energy of an entire community. 

Our Community Table programming is a perfect example of collaboration between multiple organizations. The Housing Authority of the City of Frederick and Federated Charities run the cooking project together and The Common Market and our farm partners offer support by providing many of the session ingredients and regular deliveries of local produce. In addition, in 2018 we added a weekly delivery of vegetables to program participants through the Hungry Harvest program (through their Produce in a SNAP initiative).

Unity funds will support Community Table activities in the 2019 program year, which includes hosting 12 community cooking events, vegetable shares for every family and incentives for participation and health screenings. As part of our collaboration, we also offer program assistance and administrative oversight to partner agencies. As an organization dedicated to collaborative activities that support other nonprofits, the Community Table program represents both the direct outreach of our traditional service programs and the strategic development of organizational infrastructure.

Your gifts, through the Unity Campaign, are a commitment to families to promote healthy eating, support local farms and farmers and brings people together around the table as part of our community. Thank you.

About the Unity Campaign

The Unity Campaign is an effort between nonprofits, businesses, sponsors, and individuals to benefit the health, education, and financial stability of those Frederick County households struggling to afford basic necessities.
