On May 18th the state of Massachusetts presented the following plan in regards to reopening the state. We are currently in phase 1 with future phases to be started depending on the effectiveness of the current phase. Unfortunately, this does leave us with unanswered questions but the plan does give us an indication of what to expect during each phase. If all goes well we could see a transition to phase 2 June 8th.

As our community is impacted by COVID-19, gifts to the food pantry will help ensure that vulnerable children, families, and seniors have enough to eat. NFP is responding to an increased need for food as families are out of work, children are out of school, seniors lose access to food and supplies and quarantined individuals cannot access grocery stores. The impact of school and work shutdowns, event cancellations, and restaurant closures will have far-reaching repercussions that will extend beyond the length of the viral pandemic.
