Get the latest updates on how Project Bread is working to end hunger in Massachusetts.
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.
A new study co-funded by Project Bread shows that schools collaborating with a professionally trained chef to improve the nutrition and taste of school lunches significantly increased students’ fruit and vegetable consumption.
