BROCKTON — A project to convert motel rooms into permanent housing. A freight container remade into a self-contained farm. A system for area food pantries to better serve the community.
These are the projects three Brockton organizations will bring to life with the help of a $410,000 grant from Beth Israel Lahey Health to address food insecurity and housing stability.
The recipients are Father Bill’s and MainSpring, a homeless shelter that received $205,000; the Boys and Girls Club of Metro South, which received $115,000; and the Charity Guild, a food pantry that got $90,000.
