World Hunger Day, May 28

World Hunger IIWorld Hunger Day is about raising the awareness of chronic hunger.

The silent, invisible, day-after-day condition affects 795 million people worldwide. Currently, 1 in 6 people in America experience hunger.  Locally, over 100,000 Worcester County residents utilized emergency hunger relief services over the past year.  This is approximately 12% of our neighbors and over 39% are children under the age of 18.  

This is where Community Harvest Project’s work begins. Donations to CHP will help to support our efforts in hunger relief and food insecurity on a local level while spreading awareness about world hunger. CHP creates engaged and healthier communities by bringing volunteers together to provide healthy food to those experiencing hunger, so they can have a healthy diet and avoid the health problems that come with poor nutrition.

Donate to CHP through our Adopt-a-Row and Adopt-a-Tree programs, and help make a difference in the lives our your neighbors.  You will help put fresh fruits and vegetables into the hands and homes of people who need it most. Thank you for helping us raise awareness about hunger and food insecurity.
