WHAT:          Comptroller Franchot will present a proclamation Monday morning to Maryland Hunger Solutions (MHS) at its Baltimore headquarters to recognize the organization’s efforts to provide food to low-income students and children during the summer months when school is not in session. Director Michael J. Wilson, who has served as an advocate for the wellbeing of low-income families and a core advisor in the Governor’s Partnership to End Childhood Hunger, will accept the honor on behalf of MHS.
