Benefits:
Project Soup: New England’s first free supper program, opened in 1969. Several years ago, Somerville Homeless Coalition agreed to provide a home for this long-standing community program, recognizing its work to combat hunger was integral to our mission. Project Soup serves nearly 70 people a day. Its community supper program offers meals several times a week at different Somerville churches. It also operates food pantries in three city locations; a meal-delivery service for the elderly, disabled, and those living with AIDS; a dollar-a-bag program of fresh fruits and vegetables; and nutrition classes and outreach.

Somerville Track PAC: Provides college scholarships for Somerville High School students. This volunteer organization is made up of teachers, city officials, Track Team members, families, and coaches.
