In the US there are over 530,000 people who are homeless on any given night. Fifty million people suffer from hunger, and one in four children goes to bed

Urban areas obviously experience the highest numbers of affected people, but our rural communities are also affected, particularly by hunger. The Darwin Project provides support to several homeless shelters in Boston each year, and to food pantries and meal programs, urban and rural, in our region each year. Support of food pantries and meal programs in our communities is one of the most direct actions any of us can take to help the disenfranchised.
