Message From Sasha, Director of Nutritional Services


Help prevent and end hunger in Massachusetts!


Amherst School District School Nutrition and Farm to School team is proud to be participating in Project Bread's 51st Walk for Hunger on Sunday, May 5 we are asking for participation or donations to support community-based programs across MA that help people access and afford food.

Hunger impacts 1 in 10 people in this state, and in some communities as many as 7 in 10. 

Join our team “ Hunger Busters”

or help us reach our goal by making a generous donation—whether it's $25, $75 or whatever you are able to afford. 


You are making a difference for the people who rely on these programs!

Thank you!
