Join Catholic Charities on their Holiday Challenge to support Friends Feeding Families! The Friends Feeding Families campaign supports Basic Needs Emergency Services which provides food, utility, and rental assistance to people in need throughout Eastern Massachusetts.
As we gather support for the sixth annual Friends Feeding Families Campaign, the need for food is expanding faster than we can meet the demand. The real income levels of Boston residents have increased less than 1 percent from 2009 to 2011.
At the same time, the cost of living in Boston ranks highest in the nation. Families are looking for help now more than ever before. Last year, we fed 100,000 people with the support of Friends Feeding Families. This year we aim to feed even more and raise $1 million dollars in donations.
