Meal Delivery for Families of PHA School!

The health and safety of our volunteers, Volunteer Leaders, and the people we serve is our top priority. We are working with our Community Partners to ensure that state & city guidance is followed to slow the spread of COVID-19. Read about our Safety Requirements.

During the pandemic, the PHA School Meals Program has faced challenges getting school meals to kids who have long relied on school for their daily nutrition (breakfast & lunch) throughout the school year. Since they are a regional school, their students come from over 40 cities and towns in the Boston area. PHA School Meals is dedicated to making remote learning work for families, so they are initiating a Delivery Program and starting small. This work depends heavily on volunteers willing and able to drive and deliver school meals during the school day to families.
 
Please note: Volunteers need a car or access to a car to participate in this project.
 
About Prospect Hill Academy: Prospect Hill Academy (PHA) is one of the oldest and largest charter public schools in Massachusetts. Located in Somerville and Cambridge, PHA serves over 1,100 students in grades K to 12 from diverse racial, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds. 87% are people of color, nearly two-thirds are low-income, and approximately half come from homes where English is not the primary language spoken.

For COVID-19 Safety, PHA will provide delivery drivers with a Volunteer Delivery Bag - a small paper bag with a pencil, an extra disposable mask, a pair of gloves, and paper towels for pushing buttons and opening doors if necessary. If you enter an apartment building, PHA asks delivery volunteers to use a paper towel to touch things, and when their gloves do touch things, to change them. PHA asks delivery volunteers to maintain a 6-foot distance from others.
