HOPE Meals assists Sudbury, MA residents amid difficult times, such as medical illness, surgical recovery, grief, mental health needs, new baby, etc. Ensuring you and your family have a healthy, balanced meal can ease some of the burdens of everyday life.
HOPEsudbury has partnered with Feast & Fettle to deliver one week of fresh meals (4 entrees and 6 sides portioned to your family size) to your door at no charge. Feast & Fettle is a fully prepared meal delivery service based in East Providence, RI that delivers meals all over Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Connecticut. Every meal is made fresh each day in their kitchens, then delivered right to your door in their refrigerated vans. Their food is never frozen, and they hand-select local ingredients to make your meals. Feast & Fettle takes the stress out of cooking to give you back the time to focus on what matters most!
Residents select their food and date of delivery themselves on the Feast & Fettle website. Residents can self-refer to this program or be referred by a friend/family member by filling out the meal request form here. There are no financial eligibility requirements, and we follow a strict non-discrimination policy.

All used containers are picked up at our facility by our partner, TerraCycle, who specializes in collecting hard-to-recycle materials (such as our food containers), and repurposing them into affordable, innovative products.
