FRAMINGHAM – Join United Way of Tri-County’s Pearl Street Cupboard & Café this September, for Hunger Action Month, a month where people across the country join together to fight hunger. It’s a month to spread the word and take action on the hunger crisis.

The need remains at all food programs in Massachusetts, even as residents across the Commonwealth line up for their COVID-19 vaccine. The pandemic continues to have devastating effects on local hunger and poverty, especially on the poorest and most vulnerable in our community.

That is why during Hunger Action Month, the Pearl Street Cupboard & Café is providing a list of actions you can take to help alleviate the pain of hunger.
