Your guide to food access in Roxbury

Nearly one-quarter of Roxbury households are food insecure — more than anywhere else in Boston — according to the city’s Food Access Agenda, released in 2021.

Statewide, one in three Massachusetts residents report running out of food or not having enough money to get more every month, according to findings from a 2023 report by the Greater Boston Food Bank. Approximately 1.8 million adults in Massachusetts experienced food insecurity during 2022.

These statistics are part of the larger issue of food insecurity plaguing residents across the state, particularly households with children. In Eastern Massachusetts, 32% of households with children are food insecure and rates are even higher elsewhere in the state, according to the report.
