The ongoing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the true vulnerabilities of the American food system. Food insecurity in Massachusetts has doubled from pre-pandemic numbers, and the most vulnerable populations in the state are children and Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC). In order to solve hunger permanently, anti-hunger advocacy at the local, state, and national levels will promote sustainable and scalable policy solutions that will support the movement to adequately address food insecurity and poverty in Massachusetts. This report details the purpose and impact of Project Bread’s Action Academy, an eight-part guide that presents the basics of hunger, its intersections with other issues, and the best practices for advancing comprehensive solutions that will break the cycle of hunger.
