Many families in the Commonwealth continue to face food insecurity and other health concerns. They often suffer in silence and are uncertain about where to seek support and assistance. There may be occasions where some families lack healthy and nutritious foods which can have a negative impact on a child's ability to concentrate and learn effectively in school.
In addition to the Free/Reduced Breakfast and Lunch Programs, the Massachusetts Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Nutrition Program and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) can help ensure that children will have access to nutritious food in difficult times.
