Rachel's Table, a recipient of the National Presidential Point of Light Award, and the Congressional Victory Against Hunger Award, is a food rescue program for the homeless and hungry of Worcester. Rachel's Table is a volunteer-based group that transports unserved and unsold prepared and perishable foods that otherwise would be wasted. This "excess" food is distributed to shelters, soup kitchens and neighborhood pantries.

The Worcester County Food Bank is a wonderful collaboration of local non-profit human and social service providers, donors from the food industry, corporate, government, civic and private sectors, and individual volunteers whose support and partnership is focused on "providing relief from hunger" to friends and neighbors in Central Massachusetts.

Since its incorporation in 1982 the Worcester County Food Bank has collected and distributed more than 50 million pounds of food and grocery product through a network of local shelters, food pantries, senior centers, residential rehabilitation programs, soup kitchens, after-school programs and neighborhood centers that help feed hungry people of all ages in 60 communities in Central Massachusetts.

The Mulberry Founation supports the Emmanuel Gospel Center's Starlight Homeless Program. Starlight's focus is the long-term, chronic homeless. Many of the adults served have been on the streets for much longer than a year, and often have been living on the streets for a decade or more. Although Starlight works with all individuals who are homeless, the focus has always been on serving the most vulnerable. In addition, Starlight has begun serving the increasing number of homeless youth and young adults in Boston and Cambridge.
