As a result of generous donations to the Boston Resiliency Fund, several organizations have received grant funding to expand their capacity to provide Boston’s children, families, and seniors with access to food at home or at pick-up meal sites around the City. One of these is the Fresh Truck. Councilor Bok was involved in their pilot, which will serve as a model for other locations in the City, and successfully delivered 318 boxes of fresh produce at no cost to residents in Fenway. If you are able, consider making a donation to the Resiliency Fund.
