A group effort Saturday by the New England Patriots and Revolution as well as the Massachusetts Military Support Foundation donated enough food to provide 84,000 meals to the coronavirus-stricken city of Chelsea.
For the past five weeks, vital food packages have been distributed to veterans, military families and veteran service organizations. These packages contain non-perishable foods and nutritionist-developed recipes to provide three meals a day for two people for 14 days. More than 1.7 million meals have been assembled at Gillette Stadium. The food packages have been available for pick up at six different locations including Agawam, Dennis, Devens, Foxboro, Methuen and Sandwich. Meals have also been delivered to veterans, military families and veteran service organizations all across New England.
The food Saturday was delivered to Eastern Minerals headquarters in Chelsea, which currently serves as the city’s food distribution center, where it will then be distributed to those in need. This donation is made possible by the Kraft family and the Massachusetts Military Support Foundation.
