BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The YMCA of Greater Boston was putting its best foot forward at the Massachusetts State House.

With budget allocations top-of-mind, Wednesday was the YMCA's State Advocacy Day to show lawmakers and Governor Healey's administration the array of community services the 'Y' provides.

On Wednesday, the 'Y' was showcasing some of the ways it reaches out to neighborhoods-in-need connecting with residents, ranging from water safety demonstrations, CPR, tai-chi classes, to its new mobile market food truck featuring fresh produce for free.

Elisha Manandhar is the Senior Director of Hunger Prevention.

She said the YMCA food truck is their first-ever mobile service that travels to neighborhoods providing food and nourishment at no cost. "Each of the shelves on the truck push in and lock so that we are able to drive with all of the food and produce on the truck," she said. "When we pull into the location we can just pull out the shelves so that shoppers can come and pick out what they want."
