In advance of the state primaries, Project Bread and the Food Bank Coalition of Massachusetts invited all five candidates running for Lieutenant Governor to attend a virtual forum to go on the record and answer important questions for voters regarding policy and food insecurity in the Commonwealth.
Three of the five candidates accepted the invitation:
The attendance of these candidates for Lieutenant Governor is further proof that a coalition of anti-hunger organizations as well as activists are opening and centering conversations around food insecurity and serious policy to address this issue of injustice.
We see leadership on so many levels working to tackle this basic human right, and we find it exciting that more and more electeds are seeing the seriousness of food insecurity.
Make sure you are registered to vote, and encourage your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and communities to do the same so that Massachusetts Votes Against Hunger this fall.
Each question has the video timestamp for you to watch the video and hear the candidates responses:
The forum was hosted by Project Bread and the Food Bank Coalition of Massachusetts, including The Greater Boston Food Bank, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, Worcester County Food Bank, and Merrimack Valley Food Bank.
