FabiYana’s Urgent Foods was conceived as a response to a clear gap in services: There is currently no other dedicated urgent delivery service for free food and household supplies to families who have had a sudden qualifying event and cannot access online shopping in the Greater Boston Area. Qualifying events include sudden onset of illness or other family emergency, exposure to a communicable disease necessitating immediate quarantine, and sudden loss of income.
Based in Watertown, FabiYana’s Urgent Foods delivers a food box and other health essentials including masks, thermometers, and cleaning supplies on demand to the Greater Boston area. The food box is designed to last 2 days while the family is put in touch with a more sustainable pathway (a larger pantry, SNAP benefits, etc.). Requests are made throughout the week, and are typically filled the next day or the same day.
Towns we deliver to: Boston (all neighborhoods), Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Revere, Newton, Somerville, Waltham, Watertown
