Pompeian is joining the ranks of Baltimore businesses stepping up for the community. The East Baltimore-based olive oil maker announced a $1 million program to “enrich the lives of city residents.”
Pompeian’s Olive Branch program’s first project is an after school program. “Living Healthy” will provide classes at the Penn North Safe Zone, which was created by Ericka Alston as a resource center for Sandtown Winchester kids in the wake of the April unrest that followed Freddie Gray’s funeral. Pompeian, which has been in Baltimore since 1906, is planning additional programs over the next 10 years.
“As a long-time member of the Baltimore community, Pompeian deeply cares about the City and its residents. We’re excited to welcome the kids of Penn North into the Pompeian family, and our hope is to create a truly meaningful impact on Baltimore and share our passion for healthy living with the next generation,” said Pompeian CEO David Bensadoun.
