Project Bread’s 2014 Status Report on Hunger finds working families are the new face of hunger. Despite an economic recovery, more than 375,000 Massachusetts households still face food insecurity.
Chefs in Head Start: stretching budgets, building skills… increasing the possibilities.

Project Bread programs provide people with the tools they need to improve their own lives.
This holiday season, with every meal we donate, let's remember to dish up a good portion of dignity and hope.
Project Bread works to develop programs that focus on fun as much as they focus on food. Project Bread's Chefs have been leading a series of cooking classes for teens to introduce students to a range of healthy, fresh food, and to teach them how to prepare simple, nutritious meals.
