Local leaders celebrate new van, partnership for Rachel’s Table

SPRINGFIELD – Rachel’s Table unveiled a new refrigerated van that will allow the organization to distribute thousands more pounds of food annually at a Nov. 15 press conference at the MGM Springfield loading dock.

The funding for the van derives from a $75,000 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) amendment filed by state Sen. Eric Lesser and state Rep. Brian Ashe, while another $75,000 amendment from the fiscal year 2023 (FY23) state budget will supplement the program’s food rescue work, including operational expenses and maintenance for the van.
