Community Services: Food BOOST Program, Low-Fee Testing

Amherst Survival Center Kids School Vacation BOOST Program
February Vacation Kids Boost is happening at the Amherst Survival Center Food Pantry. Families with school-age children will get extra food this month in their monthly groceries.

Folks can sign up for the first time (they need to bring proof of residence for every person in their household, school records are acceptable for kids, drivers license is acceptable for adults), or just make a return visit. The Boost is in effect for the entire month, whenever they come for their groceries (this week, or another).

Families must live in Amherst, Belchertown, Deerfield, Granby, Hadley, Leverett, Pelham, Shutesbury, South Deerfield, South Hadley, Sunderland, Ware or Whately to qualify for this program.
