SNAPchef and Masshire partnered up to help displaced workers find jobs during the pandemic through the federal Dislocated Workers Grant (DWG) program. Community organizations from across the Commonwealth were able to provide essential services to help keep the community fed and supplied during the pandemic. Employees were able to earn a paycheck while providing these essential services. Some have since been hired to become full-time employees of the organizations. We would like to thank Bryan LaPointe, Corey McGee and Neil Heenan for sharing their stories with us.
