our work

hunger relief

ECCF’s Hunger Relief Project helps local hunger organizations get the supplies and funding needed to meet the rising need for services, and provides a directory of food resources by the town for those in need of assistance.

Over 60 organizations of all shapes and sizes supply food to those in need in our communities. The Hunger Relief Project aims to support their work by:

  • Providing up-to-date web information for clients, donors, and volunteers on the hunger organizations available in each of the 34 communities in Essex County.
  • Increasing visibility for organizations to solicit the donations and volunteers they need.
  • Supporting the region’s largest annual food drive by providing donation bags for The National Association of Letter Carrier’s Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive each May.
  • Providing grants to support professional development and other activities of the regional hunger networks.

ECCF’s Hunger Project also supports the U.S. Letter Carrier’s Annual Food Drive by supplying donation bags.  Visit the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive website for more information.
