Give relief to families facing hunger
As you read this, 677,000 people in Massachusetts — the majority being children, seniors, and people with disabilities — are living without enough to eat.
You have the power right now to immediately change the life of someone unable to afford enough to eat.
Staci is a nurse and mom to two little ones, 8 and 10. Recently, she was injured on the job but getting her workman’s comp has been a slow and challenging process because agencies are understaffed and dealing with lots of backlog. Having now exhausted her savings, she called Project Bread after getting our postcard.
She is having a hard time paying her mortgage, utilities, and most importantly putting food on the table. “I’ve been a nurse for almost 13 years. Never did I think I would switch from being the person helping every day to now needing help just to keep my kids fed,” she told us. Our counselor helped Staci apply for SNAP over the phone and even gave her a referral to one of our pantry partners who is giving out Thanksgiving dinners.
“I am so relieved for a chance at bringing back some tiny sense normalcy —not spending every minute in a panic.”
Your #GivingTuesday donation will support schools providing free school meals to all students in Massachusetts this year! You will help them navigate the challenges they are facing throughout the pandemic, including issues around meal quality, menu fatigue, product shortages and supply chain challenges.
Your donations will provide one-on-one counseling and sevices to individuals experiencing food insecurity with complex medical issues.
Just yesterday, 114 people called us for fear of running out of food before they could afford to buy more. Last week we responded to more than 700 families struggling to afford enough to eat. We are proud of the support we give. It's working, but there are so many more people we haven’t helped yet.
Your gift helps connect families and individuals struggling with food insecurity access sustainable and reliable food resources – increasing SNAP enrollment substantially since the onset of the pandemic.
