WHEAT Community Connections

By Jan Gottesman MANAGING EDITOR

CLINTON - For Jodi Breidel, returning to the helm of WHEAT is a bit of deja vu.

It also has been a period of adjusting, as well as dealing with some disappointment at the stripped down version of the organization she was executive director of seven years ago.

Since returning at the end of March, Breidel has been trying to manage a consolidation of three locations into one. The first phase - moving the offices and food pantry - from Main Street into the location of the Hidden Treasures Thrift Store , 272 High St., is complete. In June, the cafe will move into the same location, making it easier to manage the multi-purpose organization, while saving money on rent. Read More

It is our mission to provide hunger relief, improve the quality of life, and connect families and neighbors in need to essential services in our community.  Our goal is to reduce levels of food insecurity, while strengthening the connections between people and available resources.
 
With food pantry locations in Framingham, Marlborough and Clinton, the United Way of Tri-County’s Food Security Initiative and Community Connection will help to provide regular access to non-emergency sources of nutritionally adequate foods.  
 
 

 

  • We can provide a warm, welcoming environment for friends and neighbors when they are faced with difficult times.
  • Once a month, we connect families and individuals with food from our pantry shelves to last an entire week.
  • Our Clothing Section connects parents to household goods and clothing for clients of all ages at no cost, including an entire section with kids' clothes, toys, and more.
  • The Book Section will connect parents to books and videos that they may be otherwise unable to afford.
 

 

  • Donate nonperishable foods to our pantry during our donation hours whenever you can.
  • Donate gently used clothing for all ages to our Clothing Section for clients who may not have access to these items.
  • Bring your gently used books and videos to our Book Section for parents and caregivers who do not have access to such valuable resources.
  • Volunteer with us for a few hours. There’s always something to do! Short-term and long-term opportunities are available.  Check out some of our volunteers in action!
  • Make a contribution to our Food Security Initiative in rememberance of someone you know.
