Fill Your Fridge: Back to School Edition


According to hunger statistics, One in nine members of our community is at risk of hunger, and that number is expanding. Hunger is no longer just a problem facing those in poverty. A recent study shows that 47% of those at risk for hunger here earn too much to be eligible for government-provided emergency food assistance.

35% of African American children and 40% of Latino children in Boston live in poverty.  Dorchester, Roxbury, Mattapan and East Boston have the highest amount of children living below the federal poverty line.   Fill Your Fridge: Back to School Edition is an effort to address the hunger issue here in Boston by providing 30 families with 1-2 weeks of staple foods to "fill their fridge (and cabinets)" with.  We will also provide each child in the household a backpack filled with school supplies to start the upcoming school year with the proper tools needed to succeed.  All food and backpacks will be delivered to all the families on August 30, 2014!

Help us help some Boston families provide healthy meals to their families.
