It's time we Raise the Issue!

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!

1. Share your Story with #RaiseTheIssue

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.

2. Tell your Reps to make hunger a bigger priority

Hunger is a political problem. Send this message to your legislators today and tell them that food is a basic human need and right and that you want them to make hunger a priority issue.

3. Walk for Hunger

Join 10,000 of your neighbors on Boston Common on Sunday, May 5 for the largest community fundraiser and oldest day of action against hunger in Massachusetts.
