Worcester And Westfield Food Pantries Deliver To Veterans During COVID


WORCESTER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A food pantry in Worcester is making sure the city's veterans are taken care of during the coronavirus pandemic.

Bill Moore, Director of Project New Hope told WBZ NewsRadio he and the rest of the volunteers at the veterans' food pantry are offering vets and their families bags of essential supplies.

"They can go in there and pull up two big bags of food off our shelves," said Moore. "And then if they have young babies... we can give them baby formula, we have wipes, diapers, a variety of sizes."

Project New Hope is also delivering supplies around Worcester and Westfield to veterans in need who are unable to leave their homes.

"I think we did about 25 this week alone," Moore said. "We'll leave it outside their door and then we'll leave the premises."
