Story

Approximately 50,820 of our neighbors throughout Hampden County struggle to access enough food. Essential social services, like the food assistance provided by The Market at Gray House, are critical to ensuring the health and well-being of low-income individuals and families throughout our community. Please support our neighbors in need by helping to fill their plates with healthy, nutritious food, today!

Our agency is committed to addressing food insecurity by providing households with nutritious groceries through the Market at Gray House. In 2020, The Gray House provided over 7,329 unique individuals with groceries and served an average of 3,413 duplicate individuals each month. We saw a 134% increase in the number of households served throughout March 2020–December 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. Our average monthly numbers have continued to increase in 2021. 

Since beginning our Fill the Plate, Feed a Family Challenge in 2015, we have raised over $75,000. Not only has this funding proved essential in allowing our agency to evolve and improve our food assistance services, but is also the leading reason why we were able to rapidly adapt our distribution method in March 2020 without any lapse in service due to COVID-19.

Please consider making a donation to our Fill the Plate, Feed a Family Challenge today. The money donated will be leveraged to provide people in our community with essential, life sustaining groceries. Please encourage friends to join you in donating by taking a photo of yourself with an empty plate and sharing it on social media with the link to donate. The empty plate represents all of the families that would go hungry without your support. Help us fill those plates by making a donation today!

*Please note, when you donate through GiveButter, you will be asked if you want to include a "tip." It will default to 10% of your gift but you can opt to choose your own amount, all the way down to $0. By enabling this question, regardless of whether or not you choose to leave a tip, The Gray House is able to avoid any platform fees!
