Hunger impacts 1 in 10 people in Massachusetts.
Hunger is an invisible problem. Food is a basic human need and yet the social climate in our country right now is quick to place blame and pass judgment about why a person is struggling to afford food. This needs to change.
We need unity, humanity, and compassion. By raising the issue, sharing our experiences, telling our stories, and promoting understanding, together we can make ending hunger a bigger priority. Here is what you can do to make a difference!
Hunger is misunderstood. By sharing our stories we will demonstrate how hunger impacts people in every community and from all walks of life. Take a selfie video or write a post sharing your personal experience with hunger with #RaiseTheIssue. With understanding comes compassion. With compassion comes action.SHARE
