Brockton Food Pantry
In the last months, the Brockton Workers Alliance has been working with Fair Foods Inc and the Trinity Baptist Church to make a Community Food Distribution. Together we have made a food pantry that we assemble every other week, and where our volunteers provide those who attend with fresh food packages for 2$ per bag.
The food pantry has allowed us to reach out to Brockton's more vulnerable workers, a group that has been most impacted by the COVID-19 situation, trying to help with the situation of food insecurity that has worsened due to the pandemic. It has also served as a way to build connections, both between the different organizations involved and between them and the community they work for.
In our last fair, we received the visit of the general attorney Maura Healey, who came to see the work that has been put in this project by our teams and volunteers.
