ABOUT MYSTIC COMMUNITY MARKET
One in 11 Medford residents struggle with food insecurity. In order to address this pressing issue, the local YMCA, Greater Boston Food Bank, and Walnut Street Center have partnered to provide a best-in-class food distribution center that places an emphasis on nutrition and community health.
Mystic Community Market had planned to distribute 200,000 meals to residents in need for the first year of operation. Increasing capacity and accessibility to healthy nutritious foods, and continued collaboration among organizations and sectors are essential to achieve the GBFB vision of a Hunger Free Eastern Massachusetts by 2028.
