Organizations across the Bay State are joining together to take on a bold mission — eliminating hunger in Massachusetts.

More than one million people in the state try to make ends meet with federal funds for food; many of those include families with children.

The new Make Hunger History Coalition includes leaders of food banks, legislators and other advocates for hungry residents whose stated goal is to make Massachusetts “the first state to end hunger, permanently.”
