In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, The New England Patriots Foundation, The Kraft family and the Revolution Charitable Foundation are joining forces with the Massachusetts Military Support Foundation to produce and distribute meals to active duty military and their families.

50,000 “Vital Food Packages”, a 14-day supply for two people consisting of non-perishable foods and nutritionist-developed recipes, will be created by volunteers to help provide 1.4 million meals for these families throughout New England.

Beginning on March 31 at 10:00 a.m., the Vital Food Packages will deliver to families, while the meals will also be available for pick up at the warehouse outside Gillette Stadium on weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. until April 10.

The Kraft family has already launched the #TogetherWhileApart campaign, an initiative designed to provide fans information regarding what the Kraft Sports and Entertainment teams are doing to help combat the pandemic.
