Food insecurity is a persistent issue in the United States and the COVID-19 pandemic has only increased the severity of this issue. Our project collaborated with Thrive Support & Advocacy in Worcester, MA to develop a food pantry for their clients with disabilities. We collected demographical data on the population while assessing their needs, connected with nearby food pantries to better understand effective operating procedures, developed precise space and staffing schedules, blueprints, and other deliverables while considering the sponsor’s available space and budget, and created partnerships with campuses, markets, and other organizations. We helped establish the Thrive Food Pantry’s long-term plans to effectively assist individuals living with disabilities in Worcester.
