Help the Hungry

Too many older adults go hungry every day. In Massachusetts, over 50,000 older adults are at risk of hunger –– and the current economic crisis is only making things worse.

How can I help?

Help feed the hungry, and give back to your community during these uncertain times – by organizing a food drive! Collect food and/or monetary donations for your favorite community-based food organization. Create The Good’s how-to kit “Organize A Food Drive” can help you plan an event where you live.

How much time will I need?

An organizer should plan on 2 to 4 hours each week for several weeks leading up to the event. Other volunteer roles may require anywhere from 2 to 10 hours throughout the planning and actual food drive.

How do I get started?

Create The Good’s toolkit outlines the steps you need to take to organize your own event, and includes detailed tip sheets for event planning, logistics, and promotion. Here are a few steps to give you an idea of how to get started.
