In response to COVID-19, My Brother’s Keeper has expanded its Food Assistance Program. Each week, an average of 350 food deliveries are being made in Brockton, Easton, Fall River, New Bedford, Dartmouth, and Westport.
We are the only local charity that delivers food assistance and emergency groceries as a core program, very important to the elderly and those without transportation.
Individuals and families in need call My Brother’s Keeper between 10AM–12PM and receive a substantial, healthy food delivery between 3–5 pm the same day.
Our deliveries consist of non-perishable canned goods, a wonderful variety of fresh fruits and vegetables plus milk, juice, eggs, butter, meat, cheese, and bread. The average retail value of each food delivery is $185 but our cost per food delivery is only $12 thanks to significant in-kind donations. No cost is ever passed along to those we serve.
My Brother’s Keeper donates surplus fruit and vegetables each week to several other local charities including Friends of the Unborn and Father Bill’s & Mainspring.
