The following information was provided by the Charles River Regional Chamber:
Over the past two years our chamber’s food assistance program has purchased more than 15,000 meals from independent restaurants in Newton, Wellesley and Needham and delivered them to families and individuals in need.
This morning we’re making our first meal deliveries in Watertown as we expand our Nourishing program yet again.
We’ll be buying boxed meals from Diner at 11 North Beacon and dropping them off at Watertown Community Fridge which has just settled into its new location at 80 Mt. Auburn St.
Upcoming deliveries to the Fridge and other Watertown locations are in the works from Deluxe Town Diner, Gerry’s Italian Kitchen, Shirax Cuisine, Cha Yen Thai Cookery, Demos, India Kitchen, Number 1 Taste and more.
The Watertown program is funded by a significant contribution by Tripadvisor and supported by numerous individual donations. If you operate a Watertown restaurant and are interested in participating (restaurants are compensated for all meals), learn more and fill out a partner application form here.
We also need volunteers to help with Watertown deliveries. If interested, fill out this form. Learn more about our Nourishing programs and additional ways you can support the effort, or make a contribution, here.
