About our Partner: Community Servings provides medically tailored, nutritious, scratch-made meals to chronically and critically ill individuals and their families across Massachusetts. They commit, in all their programs and business practices, to prioritize racial and economic justice and health equity.

Since their founding in 1990, Community Servings has provided more than 10 million medically tailored meals (MTMs) to their clients who are living with severe critical and chronic illnesses such as HIV, cancer, diabetes, and kidney disease.

Transport and Parking: Community Servings’ Jamaica Plain facility is just steps from the Stony Brook Station on the MBTA Orange Line.  They also have a parking lot designated for volunteer use on a first-come first-served basis.
