Giving a little boost: prototyping weekend food access resources to support students experiencing homelessness in Boston Public Schools

  • We have to find partners willing to experiment with us this summer
  • We have no money for any of this.
  • Could willing partners stay on past the summer?
  • Could we align existing resources to reduce costs to distributors (e.g. schools)?
  • Food can be sourced for free and meet logistical, nutritional, and legal needs
  • Schools are ideal distributors because of their structural supports.
