As New England’s expert in home-delivered nutrition for the critically ill, Community Servings provides free meals to acutely ill individuals, their families, and their caregivers. Our clients live in 16 cities and towns throughout eastern Massachusetts and battle over 20 different types of illnesses, including HIV/AIDS, breast and other cancers, and kidney disease.
In 1990, we delivered our first meal to a man dying from AIDS. After caring for the HIV/AIDS community for 14 years, we expanded to serve people with any critical illness, including mothers struggling with multiple sclerosis, their children, and grandfathers fighting ALS. Recently, Community Servings relocated to a new industrial kitchen and nutrition center, which will allow us to double the number of people we feed and offer additional programming for our sick clients.
Regardless of our growth, Community Servings will never waver from our founding goals: to help our clients maintain their health and dignity, to provide nutritionally and culturally appropriate meals, to preserve the integrity of their families, and to send the message that someone cares.
