SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Summer vacation won’t interfere with free nutritious meals for thousands of Springfield School Children.
On Tuesday, the program Home Grown Springfield began its daily mobile meal distribution to neighborhoods throughout the city. The program is called Home Grown Grab and Go.
22News caught up with the Food-Filled Truck in the Bay neighborhood, where many children in need live at the Duggan public housing apartments, one of the city’s targeted areas to keep children from going hungry this summer.
