Turning the focus on hunger

Posted by Ralph Ranalli August 21, 2008 06:53 AM

The Massachusetts Medical Society has finished its program “Hunger in the Commonwealth” and has distributed the one-hour report to local cable television stations across the state for broadcast in September, according to society officials.

The report seeks to educate the public about the growing hunger problem in the state and to encourage people to take advantage of programs that can help them if they are not getting enough nutritious food, officials said.

The program was a joint effort of the society, which is headquartered in Waltham; U.S. Congressman Jim McGovern, a Worcester Democrat; and Hopkinton’s public access television station, HCAM-TV.

The program will be broadcast on hundreds of local cable access stations and will also be available via web cast at HCAM-TV's web site beginning Sept.1.
