Boston Mayor Marty Walsh Helps
Community Servings Break Ground
New "Food Campus"
Community Servings broke ground last week on our future "Food Campus" at 179
Amory Street with Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Massachusetts Department of Public Health Commissioner, Dr. Monica Bharel, MD, MPH

The $21 million project will enable us to triple our production of medically tailored meals to meet increasing demand, double the capacity for daily volunteers, and double the number of food service job-training graduates.

The event was a celebration with leadership from our city and state, and key philanthropic supporters of the Food is the Foundation capital campaign, which to date has surpassed 80 percent of its $10 million fundraising goal.

Healthy Summer Beverage for the Win! 
Whether you're at the beach, a cookout, or relaxing in your backyard, summer activities are always better with a fruity drink in hand. Unfortunately, sugar-sweetened beverages, such as soda, sweet coffee drinks, fruit punch, and other sweetened juices may lead to weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease. 

Our dietitians recommend drinking water to quench your thirst, but if you're in the mood for something a little more special, try adding fruit or small amounts of 100% fruit juice to your water, or try seltzer, unsweetened tea or coffee. 
Cucumber Lime Spritzer
This is a refreshing alternative to a sugar-sweetened soda. Using real lime juice and cucumber gives the drink a nice bright flavor without any added sugar. Mint sprigs can also be added for another refreshing flavor note.  

Thank You!
