WANT TO HELP?

 

Given the urgent need, AKINE is helping the schools to organize and deliver meals to families who need it. However, this stopgap measure is not enough.

Reach out to your representatives in the City Council, School Committee, Mayor's office, and Superintendent's office to express your concern and tell them that the city needs a sustainable long-term plan to ensure all students have adequate nutrition and internet access.
