Candidate Expands Feed The People/Fill Your Fridge program


(Boston, MA) – Current District 7 Boston City Council candidate Jamarhl Crawford has continued efforts to serve people and address the most basic of issues through the “Feed the Hood/Feed The People”and “Fill Your Fridge” programs. The Crawford Campaign announced that it will dedicate every Saturday as long as resources are available to conduct the “Fill Your Fridge” program which delivers groceries to individuals and families in need at their own residences, senior housing and shelters. The “Fill Your Fridge” program will operate Saturdays from noon – 3pm and will deliver to its existing database of recipients based on referrals from service providers and case workers.

“I was inspired by some very specific efforts to address hunger and healthy eating for adults, families, and children. Among them; the efforts of the Feed The People (FTP) Program which feeds people across the US, local community programs like Fair Foods, the historic efforts of the Black Panther People’s Survival Program and national efforts to promote nutrition through Farmers’ Markets and Urban Gardening.”
– Jamarhl Crawford Publisher/Editor Blackstonian.com, Boston City Council District 7 Candidate

Started during the Occupy movement under the banner of Occupy The Hood Boston, Crawford has been organizing this grass roots feeding program since November 11th, 2011 (11/11/11). Since its inception, Crawford and a small dedicated team of volunteers have fed hot meals and delivered groceries to over 1,000 individuals and families in need powered by the generous donations of community members from small local events and with some edible contributions from Trader Joe’s and the assistance of community service icon Fair Foods.
