Senator Eric Lesser
This event has passed, but has been recorded for you to view.
There's a lot of exciting movement in addressing food insecurity in Massachusetts. Three candidates for Lieutenant Governor in Massachusetts will hold a virtual forum via Zoom to discuss their policies around food insecurity in the Commonwealth. The three candidates present will be Mayor Kim Driscoll, Representative Tami Gouveia, and Senator Eric Lesser.
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.
The forum is 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.
Questions will be presented to the three candidates ahead of the primary election on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.
Please join us to learn about the candidates' stance on food insecurity and to show that this issue is important to voters across the Commonwealth!
