According to Feeding America, one out of 11 adults in Massachusetts experiences hunger—as do one out of 10 children. Things right now are even more dire, as the COVID-19 pandemic and associated job losses have driven demand for food banks through the roof. At the same time, social distancing requirements have resulted in fewer fundraisers and canned food drives to stock the shelves at food banks.
We can all help by donating to our local food banks. The Merrimack Valley Food Bank (MVFB) has been the recipient of Canstruction Boston’s canned foods and fundraising since 2011; all entry fees from design teams, donations from sponsors, and funds raised by the design teams are being donated to the MVFB.
