Our Policy Priorities

Advocating for policies with impact

No one in Massachusetts should be going hungry. There's enough food available to feed everyone in the Commonwealth, but the high cost of living and wages that haven’t kept up prevent households from affording basic necessities.

Project Bread works with legislators to craft policy solutions to strengthen critical nutrition programs while engaging our partners to address the underlying factors contributing to hunger. Our advocacy is driven by the real-time challenges of people experiencing food insecurity, so we can permanently break the cycle of hunger.

Barriers to SNAP Research Findings

Indications that food insecurity is beginning to decline, with SNAP possibly having a role, brings urgency to our research to measure SNAP awareness, understand the perceptions that may impact a person’s willingness to enroll in the program, and learn about the experiences of residents when using SNAP benefits, to dismantle any barriers that persist between those eligible but not enrolled, that may contribute to SNAP’s underutilization.
