I witness the increased need for food assistance for those receiving public assistance in Milton, MA every week at the Milton Food Pantry. Skyrocketing rents are obliterating any resources avail. Please increase funding to 20 Million to feed these people and intervene before we have to react to their poor health caused by lack of access to healthy food. 70 % of our pantry's distribution is derived from MEFAP issued by the GBFB.

I help run a non-profit organization in the city of Fall River called Angels Anonymous and see first hand the great need people have for food assistance in our community. We serve hundreds of people every month! This is so important and needs to be fully funded so folks continue to get the support they need!
