The Steering Committee will be sharing an updated Community Health Needs Assessment, Fall Community Grant announcements and a review of the grant review process.

  1. Hockomock Area YMCA: Marykate Berger, Director of Community Wellness
  2. Worcester County Food Bank: Maggie Cawley, Advocacy Coordinator

  4. Community Meal Program & Milford Humanitarian Coalition: Fr. Mac, Trinity Episcopal Church
