COVID-19 has left one million Massachusetts residents unemployed, and SNAP applications have increased by 360%. Lawrence has been hit hard - among the top hot spots in the state. Those already living on the edge face drastically increased food insecurity exacerbated by social isolation.
Since the pandemic began, we've delivered over 400,000 pounds of food to local agencies, churches and the homeless of Lawrence. In addition, we're providing clothing, toiletries, pet food, laundry cards and gift cards to grocery stores and fast food restaurants.
