strives to serve all people living with illness who are in
need of our meals. We serve 16 cities and towns in Greater
Boston. We feed the client, their family members including
their caregiver, parent/spouse and children under the age

we also provide additional nutritional supplements.
We provide each of our clients with choice of a daily fresh
meal (lunch, dinner and a snack) or a weekly frozen meal bag.
Clients also have access to our nutritional counseling program,
which offers over 40 different special diets to fit their

no salt, bland, renal, vegetarian, no fish and diabetic. Through
