SPRINGFIELD — After 30 years under the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts’ umbrella, the food rescue nonprofit Rachel’s Table will become its own standalone organization this summer.
The separation will give Rachel’s Table full fiscal, operational and programmatic control to extend its reach in Franklin, Hampshire and Hampden counties. For the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts, the split will allow it to further develop its current programs, while also creating new ones.
“It’s a big deal and it was done with a great deal of consideration from all angles,” said Rachel’s Table Director Jodi Falk. “We all believe it’s a win-win and we’re all really excited to be on the same team but in a different capacity.”
