Double Impact Program Trains Young Adults, Provides Meals to Those in Need

Community Work Services’ Double Impact Initiative was developed in conjunction with Breaktime, a youth-led nonprofit and social enterprise. Double Impact has a twofold purpose – to help homeless young adults acquire job skills and economic stability, and to create meals for first responders and food-insecure participants in the Boston-area.

The need is acute. Amid a nationwide surge in food insecurity, one in seven residents and one in five children in Massachusetts will experience food insecurity, the second highest rate in the nation among children.
