A stunning 1 in 3 adults in Massachusetts are food insecure.
The guests of Rosie’s Place have always struggled with hunger. But today—with inflation over 8%, food prices the highest they’ve been in 40 years, rent prices soaring, and energy bills forecasted to be 60% higher than they were last year—our guests who were already living on the edge of homelessness and instability are most at risk. Our Food Programs are more important than ever to women who are desperately trying to get by.
Our Dining Room is open 365 days a year serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Last year alone, Rosie’s Place served more than 60,000 healthy and hearty meals. Homeless women come to Rosie’s Place tired and hungry, so we ensure that they have access to food all day long. Evolving in response to the pandemic, we now serve both sit-down and to-go meals. As the number of women who find respite and support with us increases, so does the need, with our staff currently serving approximately 170 meals and hundreds more healthy snacks daily—365 days of the year.

In response to the dramatic upswing in statewide food insecurity, our Food Pantry has now tripled its pre-pandemic capacity—serving more women and their families than ever before. We transformed our Pantry in a way that enables us to serve more guests in a safe, convenient and in a more efficient manner. So that we now provide 350 households every day with fresh meat, dairy, fruits, vegetables, non-perishable staples, household essentials and COVID tests. Women who used to shop monthly can now visit our Pantry every week to help make ends meet.
