Boston CANshare

The CANShare campaign helps raise funds to fight hunger and increases access to food.

We're excited to announce the 2020 Boston CANShare fundraising campaign. This year CANShare will operate from December 15, 2020, to February 15, 2021.

For 34 years, the CANShare fundraiser has helped Bostonians put food on their tables. Residents have increased their SNAP buying power while purchasing healthy food.
