Hunger in Eastern Massachusetts And How You Can Help



Hunger in Eastern Massachusetts And How You Can Help

Hunger is a silent epidemic. Each year, more than 320,000 people seek food assistance in eastern Massachusetts alone. They are the most vulnerable among us: children and seniors. They are people we know: our friends, neighbors, and colleagues. They live in each and every one of our communities, and are quietly seeking help from the more than 600 member hunger-relief agencies in the nine counties and 190 cities and towns of eastern Massachusetts that receive food from The Greater Boston Food Bank.


Lisa was checking in to Twitter this morning and saw a post that intrigued her from Connie Reece, about how Tyson foods was donating 100 pounds of food for every comment to this post. This time of year a comment is not to much to ask for please do your part, comment, feed the hungry and prove that tweeting and blogging about a subject is more than a bunch of people talking about what they had for lunch or where they can spot their cars on google maps.

Go Comment, it will make you feel good.

  1. Thanks for posting this, Darin. I think we showed some folks today that social media has enormous power that extends beyond the echo chamber. It was awe-inspiring to see how quickly those already-built communities were engaged for this.
