Today's topic: All you want to know about “Food on the 15th” donation project. 

Julie Rosenthal, Founder and Director of Food on the 15th ( will be with us on Monday, March 8 at 9 a.m. to talk about how she started Food on the 15th 14 years ago.  The purpose of Food on the 15th is to (1) get children of any age involved in helping others in their community (as long as their parent or guardian is there to supervise them), and (2) to collect nutritionally balanced non-perishable food, which children sort and either bag and deliver to low-income older adults (Morningside Park Apartments in Jessup) or they participate in a mini-grocery store that is set up in the community room of the Tiber Hudson Building in Ellicott City one weekend day per month.

Julie will discuss why she started Food on the 15th, how she designed the program to literally operate on $0 overhead and how over the last 14 years Food on the 15th has been able to deliver over 53,000 FREE bags of groceries and toiletries.  All items were donated and people volunteered their time to sort and deliver.

Julie is a founding member of the Retriever Essentials Food Pantry for students, faculty and staff at UMBC.  She also started the Asian Food Pantry at Longwood Apartments in Columbia, which unfortunately is no longer in existence.

Julie will show you the model she uses to teach high school students how to start a community service project, in this case Food on the 15th, at their high school and how to use this model to develop virtually any type of community service project anywhere.

Julie asked that we thank everyone, once again, in our community and especially Mary McGraw and Ron Putz for the wonderful amount of non-perishable food that was donated in November.

Come to join us for our new “Good Morning, Howard!”  zoom group.  We will be following the new schedule as listed below:

Monday & Wednesday at 9:00 AM

Our goal is to provide Howard County residents an opportunity to come together in a relaxed atmosphere, to meet with others, and to participate in the discussion/activities of Health and Wellness. Our content may include using technology to connect with family and friends, gardening, exercise, music, movies, jokes, popular websites, and healthy diet.

Participation is easy because driving is not required. This social program is for TVIH members and older adults from Howard County. This program was popular in August and is continuing in September.

Volunteers (TVIH members) will take turns to serve as the hosts of the GMH zoom meetings. The hosts will greet the participants, make introductions, and give the feedback/suggestions back to the membership committee.

Most people will join by using their computer, tablet or smartphone. To join, you need a zoom meeting link. The link will be emailed to you after you register. 

To Join Zoom Meeting by using a smartphone, dial 1-929-205-6099. You will be prompted to enter the meeting ID and the password.  If you are prompted to enter a personal ID, simply press the # sign.
