In seeing this, I thought about all the people who live with food insecurity these days. How can we better connect the folks in need with resources like this? After all, if you live in Maynard and don't have enough to eat, chances are you may not have a car to get to Boxborough. True, we have Open Table and The Maynard Food Pantry here, so that's something solid. And Maynard is so small that almost anyone who lives here can walk to those places if they can't drive.
I thought of having a mini van service to drive up there every Saturday morning, free of charge, so that people could just hop on and ride up there, grab some of what's available, and then be carried back home. Perhaps leave from Main Street, near the Post Office.
I'm so busy trying to report the news, I'm unlikely to have the energy to organize this (as I'm short on sleep as it is), but if someone does, I can help by creating flyers and run stories here to help publicize it.
