To help ensure the nutritional safety net for children during school closures, school districts are eligible to apply for emergency grants of up to $10,000. Monies may be used for equipment and supplies necessary to increase the numbers of meals served, including mobile and delivered meal solutions. Grant applies to Massachusetts only.
Please see the opinion piece in the The Boston Globe from Eos President, Andrea Silbert with her plan for how the state could provide daily meals to all of our needy citizens through an existing network of 1,200 meal sites throughout the state. This plan would not only put food on tables of many more people, but also provide badly needed jobs while keeping people in their homes and out of the grocery stores at the same time. Read more on this strategy to potentially feed a million more people with prepared meals each day.
