BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A partnership that includes the YMCA of Greater Boston is helping provide nutritious food to people and families with food insecurities.

The food goes directly into different neighborhoods from a new four-wheel Mobile Market Food Truck. 

Eillisha Manandhar, Senior Director of Hunger Prevention for the YMCA of Greater Boston, said the food truck goes to different parts of the city during the course of a week, with food provided by the Greater Boston Food Bank. "This is our new truck, and we go to neighborhoods that include Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, Dorchester, Mattapan, Hyde Park and East Boston," she said. "We get a lot of inquiries from those neighborhoods, so that's where we are trying to prioritize for now. And then we will transition to other neighborhoods in Boston." 

With inflation hitting the cost of living on a number of fronts, free food is especially welcome in these neighborhoods.
