  • Join us for Ride for Food - Off the Beaten Path! 

.
@threesquaresne’s annual ride may look a little different this year, but the fight against food insecurity across MA is still on, and more important than ever! We are currently seeking energetic individuals to join Community Servings’ Ride for Food team this year.

.
Rather than the traditional one day cycling event, 2020 team members will be allowed to choose their own physical challenge, such as individual rides, runs, and walks, any time between now and October 4th.

.

  • Since #COVID19 struck our community, the Client Services team has taken on more clients, more phone calls, and more emails than ever before – but that hasn’t slowed them down one bit! .

We have taken on hundreds of new clients over the past few months, and we never could’ve done it without the hard work and dedication of Client Services. .

Thank you Carolyn, Nia, and Barbara for all that you do!

  • Treating Chronic Kidney Disease. .

For many patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), food insecurity is a persistent threat to their health. .

This is something that Community Servings and other members of the @fimcoalition are working hard to change through Medically Tailored Meals – an evidence-based nutritional intervention that is custom-made for an individual’s specific medical condition(s) and delivered to that person’s home. .

Collectively, we couldn’t do what we do without generous support from companies like Fresenius Medical Care North America, which in addition to their recent grant, produced this insightful video featuring CEO @dbw617 and Dr. Dugan Maddux, MD, FACP.  #MedicallyTailoredMeals #FoodIsMedicine

  • A classic Strawberry Shortcake is a traditional summertime dessert, and our favorite at Community Servings! Whipping up a lightened version of Eating Well's Strawberry Shortcake Cake, adapted by our Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, is a delicious way to celebrate the season. Throw on a little ice cream, or whipped cream, and you have a real treat!

  • Since our founding three decades ago, supporting the LGBTQ+ community has been at the core of what we do. .

We are very proud of our history as a scratch-made food program that began by delivering hot meals to neighbors suffering from HIV/AIDS in Dorchester and Roxbury. .

Today, with our expanded mission to serve those living with critical and chronic illnesses, we want to acknowledge how much the LGBTQ+ community means to all of us at Community Servings. Just as we have been there for them, the LGBTQ+ community has been there for us; giving constant support in the forms of volunteer time and donations so we can serve more people in need. .

Thank you for all you have done to help Community Servings grow to where we are today. We see you, and we stand with you as you have stood with us. Happy Pride!

  • This #FathersDay, your purchase of delicious, salty pretzels from @esprovisions provides one to three weeks of medically tailored meals to a client like Bouba Diemé (@heartofagiant), who lives in Boston with his wife, five-year-old-son, and almost-two-year-old twins. .

Bouba has a congenital heart defect and is on a waiting list for a heart transplant. He credits his meals with helping him lose weight, regain his energy, go back to full-time work, and keep up with the three little ones he has at home. .

To order a Father's Day gift box and to learn more about Bouba's story, visit the link in our bio.

  • We are deeply moved by the continued protests and marches through Boston and around the country in response to the tragic, senseless killing of George Floyd. .

The sense of urgency and solidarity we’ve seen for Black members of our community is giving us hope that the spotlight shining on racism and racial inequity in our country isn’t going to fade anytime soon. .

When considering additional ways to show your ongoing support, please remember that while all restaurants have been impacted by COVID-19, black-owned restaurants and businesses have been disproportionally affected. They need our help more than ever. Giving them your business by purchasing take-out or dining al fresco (distantly starting today) means you’re making a meaningful difference, one meal at a time. .

For a list of 60+ Black-owned restaurants that can benefit from your purchase, please click the link in our bio. #blacklivesmatter #blacklivesmatterboston #georgefloyd

  • We are devastated by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, feeling a mix of anger, outrage and deep sadness.  Racial inequity has been a reality in America for generations, and includes access to the food we eat and healthcare we receive. .

At Community Servings, we envision a world in which everyone has access to the nutritious food they need for health and wellbeing as a fundamental right, and we will continue working hard to achieve that goal. .

As an organization and individuals, we are making a public pledge to do more. The repeated killing of innocent black Americans forces us all to challenge our complacency and raise our voices in solidarity with our African-American friends, co-workers and neighbors. .

In the coming days and weeks, we will engage with our DEI team to determine how Community Servings can further strengthen our response to these issues internally and externally. .

In the meantime, we encourage you to take advantage of the many resources available to help show your support and call for meaningful change. .

A few examples include: .

@blklivesmatter : blacklivesmatter.com

The Massachusetts Bail Fund : massbailfund.org

@campaignzero : joincampaignzero.org/#vision

Other ways to start making an immediate impact include purchasing take-out or gift card from one of the many Black-owned restaurants in our community.

Click the link in our bio to view a comprehensive list of these eateries open for take-out and delivery.
