GREENFIELD — The Franklin County Community Meals Program has resumed its hot, free community meals at the Second Congregational Church on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

The to-go meals are professionally prepared following restaurant safety guidelines and are available to anyone who needs them, according to a Franklin County Community Meals Program press release.

To fulfill its mission to work in partnership with the community to alleviate hunger, the organization is collaborating with the church and caterers.

Members of the church’s Easter People Committee, under the guidance of a Deerfield Academy chef, are creating the Tuesday meals as part of its food insecurity ministry, the release states.

Wheelhouse Farm in Amherst is providing the meals on Wednesdays as part of its Essential Meals Project sponsored by the Wrenegade Foundation.

Meals will be available to-go both days from 4:45 until 5:45 p.m. or until the food is fully distributed. Meals may be picked up outside on the driveway between the church and City Hall on Court Square. According to the release, strict social distancing will be observed. Sanitized, homemade masks will also be distributed for free, while supplies last.
