From YouTube: Open Pantry of Greater Lowell

Description

The mission of The Open Pantry is to relieve hunger in our community. We aim to connect people to a variety of filling, nutritious, and culturally-appropriate food as well as to other community resources; to advocate on behalf of those in need locally, statewide, and nationally; and to engage with others in building food security.

Lowell joins other communities across the country in celebrating the projects and activities funded through grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Community Development including the Community Development Block Grant, the Home Investment Partnerships Program, and Emergency Solutions Grant Program. The organizations featured in this film (program/segment/whatever is appropriate) are supported in part by these federal programs to provide a variety of services for Lowell's most vulnerable populations. During CD Week, many of these organizations, along with community groups will host open houses and tours to showcase their programs to the public. More information, including a complete schedule of events can be found at www.lowellma.gov.
