Mechelle, a long-time resident of Athol, shares her own story about living in rural Massachusetts and the challenges she faces every day to afford healthy food after losing her job of 33 years.
Project Bread's Voices of Hunger Video Series brings to light the personal experiences of food-insecurity that residents across Massachusetts are facing. An often invisible problem, hunger impacts 1 in 10 households in Massachusetts.
In the state of Massachusetts there are rural regions, coastal areas, and urban cities big and small. Through Project Bread's Voices of Hunger, we meet residents from each of these distinct communities and learn the diverse challenges they face to access and afford food where they live.
