Such exciting and important work! Thank you for sharing, Stacy. I can only imagine the amount of time and energy that is being put into this. I know our patients and families will be so grateful!
It is enlightening to hear how you incorporate additional education and resources, and avoid taking a linear approach. Thank you for sharing, Sharon!
TY so much. Great presentation. Need to hop off for 10:45 PM call, but really admire this critical work. Pat
Fair Foods is one of the very few sources of fresh Fruits and vegetables in East Boston. The rest has been shelf stable. And the USDA boxes were very meat and dairy heavy due to those lobbies. We are the East Boston Fair Foods distributor. This is an important fresh food sources with 250K lbs distributed per month (3 Million lbs per year). Our East Boston distribution represents 20 percent of this distribution. Unfortunately under the lifted emergency regulation, state health policies now make it difficult to distribute this food on the ground as most CBOs don't have walk in refrigeration which is really not needed since this food goes from source to consumer in less than 8 hours. These policies need to be revisited and pandemic extensions are needed.
I really appreciate these updates on your work and conversation. Thanks, BCH team! :)
Well said Sharon!!!
Thank You Alicia
