LET'S MAKE AN IMPACT!
Donations support local New England food banks and hunger relief programs to help people who are in dire need of food. Before Covid-19, 1 in 9 Americans struggled with food insecurity. As a result of Covid-19 food insecurity is expected to double world-wide.
100% of all donations go directly to the selected charities. This challenge supports local food banks and hunger relief programs. We have provided the option to select one of the following charitable organizations: The Greater Boston Food Bank, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, Worcester County Food Bank, Rhode Island Community Food Bank, Foodshare (CT), Connecticut Food Bank, Vermont Foodbank, New Hampshire Food Bank, and the Good Shepherd Food Bank. They all are (and have been) working hard to address the increasing need that has increased by 100% already due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Select the charity that you want to support today, and please feel free to encourage others to support as well. We had an initial goal of raising $10,000!
UPDATE: We have blown past our updated goal of $100,000 and have now set our sights on $150,000! (Wow!)
What is food insecurity?
Food insecurity describes a household’s inability to provide enough food for every person to live an active, healthy life. Food insecurity is one way we can measure and assess the risk of hunger.
