Hunger should never be an obstacle to success. That's why MassBay’s Student Nourishment & Care Committee (SNACC) has partnered with the Greater Boston Food Bank, Food for Free, and Daniel’s Table to help support members of our community who do not have enough to eat.

 

MassBay Student Food Scholarship Application

As part of the continued efforts of Massbay’s SNACC (Student Nourishment & Care) Committee, we are pleased to offer a Grocery Delivery Scholarship to help support our students who are experiencing food insecurity for the Fall 2021 semester. Due to the transition to online and remote learning, the SNACC Committee has partnered with Pea Pod Grocery Delivery Service to provide something convenient, safe and nutritious, delivered right to your door. Selection for this food scholarship will prioritize students who are food insecure and/or need additional financial assistance. Students must be enrolled in at least 1 Fall 2021 Class. Apply now! Applications must be completed by Tuesday, September 14th to be considered. Students will know whether they have been awarded by Tuesday, September 21st.

What is it?

Selected students enrolled in summer classes will receive a free, recurring delivery of fresh produce, fruits, pantry items, and dairy directly to their door. Food will be delivered by Peapod, a grocery delivery service, and paid for by MassBay.

How does it work?

After a student is selected for the Food Scholarship, they will be invited to create an account with Peapod Grocery Delivery Service that MassBay will pay for. Students will have a set budget and customization window to place their orders during and will receive their items in the following few days. Students living in a variety of situations should be able to receive their deliveries with ease and confidence.
