Mission: Provide food to residents in need
Date: February-May 2021
Worcester Railers HC is excited to partner with the Massachusetts Military Support Foundation (MMSFI) and Advantage Truck Group (ATG) to provide fresh food boxes to both veterans and the general public at the Worcester Railers Distribution Center.
In response to the food insecurity problem posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the MMSFI has been selected as a distribution partner for the USDA’s Farmers to Families program. The Railers offered the Winter Street parking lot as a local distribution site for the Worcester community. Each week, Railers staff, interns, mascot TRAX, and other community partners volunteer at the site.
The Farmers to Families Food Boxes contain 32 pounds of perishable and non-perishable food items including fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and meat products. The distribution process follows all COVID-19 health guidelines.
Food boxes are available for pick-up every Wednesday now through the month of June, from 9am-11am in the parking lot adjacent to the Fidelity Bank Worcester Ice Center. Pre-registration is required at mmsfi.org/farmers-to-families.
