The East Boston Community Soup Kitchen‘s Sandra Nijjar, East Boston Neighborhood Health Center‘s Joanna Cataldo, Project Bread‘s Maura Ackerman, and Karen a currently homeless person who visits the soup kitchen regularly, joined me today on What’s up Eastie? to discuss hunger alongside the social defects that lead to hunger, and the actions they are taking to combat both hunger and its root causes.
Listen to the conversation:
How you can get involved:
- Project Bread’s Walk of Hunger is coming right up on May 6, 2018.
- The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is the coming Saturday — a great day to get rid of prescription drugs that are risky to keep in the house.
- The soup kitchen is looking for assistance in many areas. Reach out to Sandra if you are interested in volunteering.
