Analgesic Solutions volunteers at Community Servings
In January, the Analgesic Solutions team spent the day volunteering at Community Servings in Jamaica Plain. Community Servings is a not-for-profit food and nutrition program providing services throughout Massachusetts to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. They provide clients, their dependent families, and caregivers appealing, nutritious meals, and send the message to those in greatest need that someone cares. The goal is to help clients maintain their health and dignity and preserve the integrity of their families through free, culturally appropriate, home-delivered meals, nutrition education, and other community programs. The Analgesic Solutions team thought this was a great organization to spend their time volunteering at, as it aligns with their mission of aiding people with medical issues.
Community Servings delivers 560,000 free, home-style meals to 1,850 people per year, who are too sick to cook for themselves or their families. Currently caring for clients with 35 different life-threatening illnesses, their services includes a customized, nutritionally-packed lunch, dinner, and snack for sick clients, their caregivers and dependent children, 92% of whom live at or below the poverty level. As the only program of its kind in New England, they offer 17 different medically-appropriate menus each week, including a Children’s Menu. The Analgesic team spent the day chopping vegetables and packaging food. At the end of their volunteering day, they were tired but very excited and all are anxious to do it again.
