Get the latest updates on how Project Bread is working to end hunger in Massachusetts.
Organic produce is expensive. Local organic produce? Even pricier.
For those living on a fixed income, farmers markets, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares and the like are simply out of the question. A tomato sold at a farmers market, for example, carries a much higher price tag than that of its grocery store equivalent, putting it “back on the shelf” for many lower-income shoppers.
For the fourth consecutive summer, Project Bread partnered with Congressman Jim McGovern to host the "Summer Food Rocks Tour" throughout Central and Western Massachusetts on Friday, July 21. The tour highlighted the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and how it fills the meal gap left when school lets out for the summer and students can no longer rely on school meals. The SFSP is a federally-funded program, administered in our state by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. It provides meals at no cost to kids 18 and under throughout the summer months.
The Child Nutrition Outreach Program at Project Bread joined the Waltham Boys & Girls Club in hosting a kick-off event for the Summer Food Service Program at Lowell Spray Park on Tuesday, June 27. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federally funded, state administered nutrition program that provides free meals to kids ages 18 and under during the summer months in eligible areas.
