"I first learned about Daniel’s Table in 2016 on my way to work through this radio interview here.  I was immediately impressed with the back story for their inspiration, as well as, their resolve and approach to an enormous undertaking. At this time, they had been at their mission for two years, and were barely reaching their stride. Today, just one of their programs, Covid Emergency Food Relief Program, is assisting over 650 families per week with over 15,000 meals of emergency food and providing hot meals to over 50 homeless individuals on weekends.  Another program, Community Freezer Program, currently maintains 23 freezers throughout Framingham, located in public schools, the YMCA and social service providers offices.  These freezers are stocked and maintained by Daniel’s Table staff with freshly prepared frozen meals.  Daniel’s Table recently surpassed 500,000 meals served to the residents of Framingham and they continue to implement new ideas and strategies to end hunger in their town.  "
