WHAT: Senator Ben Downing (D-Pittsfield), Representative Tricia Farley-Bouvier (D-Pittsfield) and Representative Paul W.

State officials will tour alongside Ellen Parker, executive director of Project Bread, Superintendent Jason McCandless, and numerous Williams Elementary School stakeholders.
Project Bread has named Darcy A. Pfeifer as its new director of institutional advancement. In the role, Pfeifer assumes responsibility for fundraising and development as well as marketing and communications. She brings more than 15 years of experience at both nonprofits and for-profit companies, including the management of major corporate partnerships, spearheading national fundraising campaigns and coordinating strategic communications plans.
This summer, more than 50,000 children will enjoy a free, healthy breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner at one of more than 600 sites across Massachusetts—all part of the Summer Food Service Program, a federally funded nutrition program that provides free meals to children ages 18 and under when school is not in session.
Partners HealthCare is helping provide nutritious meals to more than 12,000 low-income children a day in the Greater Boston Area over the summer. Working in partnership with the Child Nutrition Outreach Program and Project Bread, Partners is awarding $35,000 to Summer Food Service Program locations in 9 communities including Boston, Brighton, Dorchester, Haverhill, Revere, Salem, Springfield, Waltham, and West Roxbury.
Project Bread is awarding more than $100,000 to 20 farm and urban gardening programs in 16 communities across Massachusetts. These grants, awarded during the spring planting season, are designed to help these agricultural programs start the season strongly. Each of the grantees helps provide sustainable, responsible solutions that help people get access to healthy, affordable food where they live.
