SFPC Hunger Action Advocate!

September is Hunger Action Month

Did you know that food insecurity is more of an issue today than at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic? Nationally, the cost of food has increased 10.4% from a year ago. Inflation in housing, gas, and food, in addition to supply chain issues and the end of stimulus checks and monthly child tax credits, has made putting food on the table a challenge for many families. In Southeastern MA, food insecurity rates show 1 in 14 people are food insecure and there has been a 30% increase in people registering for SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program).

The need for food is increasing, while the number of donations has decreased – You can help!
