Major Accomplishments

COVID-19 Crisis Response

As an “Essential Services Provider” Community Servings is working on the frontlines. In order to address the crisis across the community, we are seeking additional funding for the following purposes:

  • Increase kitchen capacity to produce 16,000 meals per week to reach more high-risk/high-need populations.

  • Increase home-delivery of 10 meals per week with the goal of serving 1,600 food-insecure, severely ill, immune- suppressed clients per day.

  • In partnership with the City of Boston, expand our feeding program during the height of the pandemic to produce 2,500 meals per week for include food-insecure and high-risk Boston residents, providing our microwave- ready, scratch-made meals for partner agencies able to pick them up from our kitchens in Jamaica Plain.

  • Increase purchasing of emergency food supplies.

  • Assemble and ship thousands of medically tailored shelf- stable food boxes to ensure clients have reserves of food in the event of disruptions in delivery.

  • Shift our business operations, which relied heavily on 50- 75 volunteers per day, to a fully paid staff to limit the risk of exposure and streamline operations. This will require hiring up to 14 new kitchen and delivery staff, drawing from laid-off restaurant and food vendor workers.

  • Increase safety and sanitation of our building and delivery vans, including institution of a “no-contact” delivery method.

  • Invest in additional equipment and technology to ensure staff that need to be home due to childcare and/or preexisting health conditions can work remotely.

My pantry is more stocked up than it’s been in a long time. I now feel safe and prepared during this challenging time. Thank you, Community Servings, for everything you do!~Community Servings Client

Stocking up on food is always hard for me. In addition to my meals, I am so grateful for the extra boxes of food that you sent me. Thank you!” ~Community Servings Client
