Do you know what hunger looks like in our community?
It looks like neighbors and friends. You likely know someone struggling, but shame hides the hungry.
At Gaining Ground's weekly Food for Families program this summer, a woman wandered over to our free farmer's market. She had been watching the daughter's soccer game, looking like any other parent on the sideline. She asked if she could take some food, almost whispering, "I live in Sudbury and have kids and not enough to eat and I can't face going to the local food pantry." We gave her a bag to fill.
We live amidst plenty, but food insecurity - inconsistent access to nutritious food - disrupts lives around us. Your support makes a difference.
