About Us

Terps Against Hunger is a student run organization at the University of Maryland that organized and conduct food-packing events with student groups and community organizations. We held our first packing event in the fall of 2013. Since then, we have been adopted as the University of Maryland's homecoming and the UMD Greek Week community service project. 

We strive to educate others in the issue of hunger around the world, enlist students to join us in being part of the solution, and empower students to make an impact in the areas they are passionate about.

Our Meals

Rice provides that basic building block to a stable diet and is a universal grain culturally accepted around the world. That means someone from DC and someone from Haiti knows exactly how to prepare the meal.
The soy is the key protein in the meal needed to facilitate movement and growth. We want active, healthy kids and they all need protein to be able to build strong muscles and grow.
This powder is rich in those extra nutrients and essential amino acids that are key to physical and mental development. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies have terrible effects on the body but are easily avoidable, so our meals include 21 essential vitamins and minerals.
With one last scoop, we add in a mixture of flavoring to give the meals a better taste as well as some extra nutrition. Our meals are not only healthy and nutritious, but they also taste good!

That’s why we were so excited about this event. It is an event with some energy, something we can get our hands on and do across traditions

Rev. Brett Pinder

I like that Maryland had these events, I definitely feel like I’m a part of something. It’s just great to see the whole UMD community coming out just to help

Arielle Dupiton

The group is called Terps Against Hunger, but in reality all of us today are all Terps against hunger. It’s about the campus community coming together to not only be in each other’s company, but to serve the better good of the people who live around us

Dr. Marsha Guencler-Stevens

I liked that they put such an effort into making a meal that was the most possible advantage with the least possible cost. It was clear that they actually wanted to do something real

Mary Sorensen

We do rely heavily on the support of the community, which is why food drives are so important. We can't do it alone, so we are so grateful for Terps Against Hunger
