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.
