The Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts recently awarded $75,000 in grants to combat food insecurity throughout the communities in our region.
"Food insecurity is an important concern for far too many people in our community, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only increased the hardships on local families," said Stephen Adams, president of the Community Foundation.
