Cape Cod Healthcare Supports Area Food Pantries and Meal Program

(Hyannis, MA – December 21, 2020) Cape Cod Healthcare is supporting the critical nutritional need of the community through the financial support of local organizations supplying food and ready-made meals to Cape Codders. Cape Cod Healthcare has awarded $55,000 in grants, as a part of the Cape Cod Healthcare Community Benefits program, to three non-profit groups, serving thousands of individuals and families in the region who suffer from food insecurity, a critical factor in maintaining good health.

The Falmouth Service Center has received $15,000 to support its food pantry this holiday season. The Falmouth Service Center provides foods and other basic necessities to those who live or work in Falmouth, Mashpee and at Joint Base Cape Cod and struggle with food security.

A $15,000 grant was made to the Yarmouth Food Pantry, a resource serving as a food pantry and distribution center in the mid-Cape area. The Yarmouth Food Pantry provides food and basic needs to more than 3,000 families and 8,000 individuals in the region.

Cape Cod Healthcare also awarded a $25,000 grant to the Barnstable Public Schools Meal/Service Program, which has provided grab-and-go breakfast and lunch to all Barnstable youth since the spring, when in-person learning was halted at public schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This year, more than ever, we must pay close attention to our community and lead with our hearts. Cape Cod Healthcare is supporting food pantries and meal distribution programs to assist in this critical need,” said Michael K. Lauf, president and CEO of Cape Cod Healthcare.
