This week's Holiday Hero Badass Chick is Erin McAleer, the new president of Project Bread

 

Project Bread is an anti-hunger organization that provides households across Massachusetts access to healthy food. One in ten families struggles to put food on the table, and some children rely on receiving half of their calories through school meals. So that means around the holidays, increased expenses and time off from school can be really dire for food-insecure families, and that's why Erin and her team work non-stop to ensure that families get food on their tables. 

 

Erin herself is no stranger to food insecurity. Growing up, after her parents divorced, her mom struggled to feed Erin's family. She saw first-hand how important it is to instill healthy habits in children at a young age. So, after attending Boston College for social work, Erin went on to work in government and politics. She's now able to take a very holistic approach in ending hunger in Massachusetts and help those who need it most, especially around the holiday season. For that, Erin is my Holiday Hero Badass Chick of the Week!
