Home Delivery Program
Home Delivery brings food to low-income Cambridge residents who cannot access food pantries due to illness or disability.
We deliver 40-45 pounds of food, including fresh produce, twice per month to each of 90-100 households. Clients are either seniors and/or people with disabilities, and are unable to access traditional food pantries due to their illness or disability.
Unlike meals-on-wheels programs, Home Delivery brings groceries to our clients, so that the recipients can cook their own food. It gives seniors and people with disabilities more control over their meals, while providing a supportive service that helps them to stay in their own homes.
- 110-120 clients served each month
- Two deliveries per client per month
- 35-40 pounds of food in each delivery
- 50% of the food delivered is fresh produce

Applicants must live in Cambridge, and because of a disability or impairment, be unable to use existing food pantries. Applicants must qualify as low-income under HUD guidelines (less than $34,250 per year for one person).
