WORCESTER, Mass. - A new meal delivery program will serve Worcester Housing Authority (WHA) residents.
Renaissance Medical Group (RMG) launched the Buen Provecho Meal Program on Wednesday with the WHA.
It will start by serving the Webster Square Towers on Main Street.
The group said they noticed the need when the pandemic hit and people were impacted by food insecurity.
"We want to ensure that not only are they healthy but they have access to free food so RMG has been a really great partner to us to provide those services," Alex Corrales, CEO of the WHA, said.
"We’re giving meals based on their culture," RMG CEO, Jesus Saurez, said. "If they're Latinos, they need that chicken and rice and a flavor they can feel comfortable. That's what we’re doing, were doing it in a way they're going to love it."
"We have a hunger problem in this country and people often times go without meals," Congressman Jim McGovern said. "Our goal should be not only that people have enough to eat, but that they have access to good, nutritious food. That's what this is all about, so I'm really happy to be here."
The group says said meals are precooked, shelf-stable food infused with Caribbean Latino flavor.
