Food, Social Good
Food Insecurity is a common challenge for many Communities United, Inc (CUI) families... but this year was different. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, food insecurityin Massachusetts increased 55% from 2019 to 2020. Food insecurity rates during the pandemic were highest among adults with children. 42% of households with children experienced food insecurity during the pandemic.
The CUI Food Program In order to support our children and families struggling with food insecurity, we quickly mobilized a monthly food distribution program. Funded by our generous sponsors and donors, CUI has delivered over 1,500 meals since October 2020, and we’re still going strong!
