Construction of Community Servings’ new “Food Campus” began with a groundbreaking ceremony, attended by Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, Commissioner of Mass. Dept. of Public Health Monica Bharel, MD, PMH, and more than 100 of Community Servings’ dedicated advocates, donors, and volunteers.

The Food is the Foundation Campaign supports the expansion of Community Servings’ facilities, allowing us to triple the kitchen capacity and meet a surge in demand for our made-from-scratch, medically tailored meals. So far, more than $8 million has been raised towards our $10 million fundraising goal.
