Two Western Mass. Nonprofits Team to Fight Regional Hunger
August 26, 2021 — Two nonprofit organizations in western Massachusetts this week announced they have joined forces to fight hunger in the region, which, like in the rest of the state, has become more prevalent during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts, based in Springfield, through Rachel’s Table (RT), its food rescue and redistribution program, will provide 200 volunteer driver to help The Food Bank Of Western Massachusetts (FBWM), based in Hatfield, transport food directly from designated grocery stores to the FBWM agencies.
The effort will help fill the gap where agencies lacked transportation or when its volunteers were needed elsewhere, FBWM said.
