Fresh Truck is one of 100 local nonprofits to receive grants of $1OO,OOO each through Cummings Foundation’s “$1OOK for 1OO” program. The Boston-based organization was chosen from a total of 597 applicants, during a competitive review process. Cummings Foundation has announced a total of $2O million in grants to Greater Boston charities in the past two months alone.

This award from the Cummings Foundation will support the growth of our Weekly Market program helping us reach more than 2O Boston area locations by the end of 2O18. “Fresh Truck is honored to have been selected as a grant recipient through Cummings Foundation’s 1OOK for 1OO program,” said Fresh Truck’s Co-Founder and Executive Director, Josh Trautwein. “This grant will directly support the continued growth of our Weekly Market program that provides access to fresh, affordable food to more than 4,OOO Boston households.”

The $1OOK for 1OO program supports nonprofits that are based in and primarily serve Middlesex, Essex, and Suffolk counties. Through this place-based initiative, Cummings Foundation aims to give back in the area where it owns commercial buildings, all of which are managed, at no cost to the Foundation, by its affiliate Cummings Properties. Founded in 197O by Bill Cummings of Winchester, the Woburn-based commercial real estate firm leases and manages 11 million square feet of space, the majority of which exclusively benefits the Foundation.

“We are indebted to the nonprofit organizations like Fresh Truck that have a meaningful positive impact on the local communities where our colleagues and clients live and work,” said Joel Swets, Cummings Foundation’s executive director. “We are delighted to invest in their important programs and services.”

The complete list of 100 grant winners will be available beginning June 7th at www.CummingsFoundation.org.
