Massachusetts Votes Against Hunger

Always vote.

Our elected officials vote on policies that can make a dramatic difference on how people access basic resources like food, but they need to know food insecurity and supporting those in need are priorities for voters. Your voice matters and you can make a difference. Getting involved by voting is one of the key ingredients to how we solve hunger in Massachusetts.

Massachusetts' Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2022
