Consigli Partners with Local Nonprofit to Renovate Food Pantry for Worcester Elementary School

MILFORD, MA – Consigli Construction Co., Inc. and the Consigli Foundation recently supported the Juniper Outreach Foundation’s efforts to convert a supply closet at City View Discovery Elementary School in Worcester into a food pantry for students.

A team of Consigli volunteers completed light renovations on the space, including shelf and carpet installation, painting and patching walls. The new food pantry allows students to receive food, toiletries and other necessities in a safe and welcoming place and will help combat food insecurity for local families. One hundred percent of the student population at City View is eligible for free or reduced-price school meals.

UMass Chan Medical School and Stop & Shop also partnered with the Juniper Outreach Foundation to help stock the food pantry renovated by Consigli employees for the remainder of the 2023 school year.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at City View Discovery Elementary School to celebrate this new resource for the families served by Worcester Public Schools.

“This is our first collaboration with Consigli, and I really want to thank Consigli for making this all a dream come true for this school and for the kids,” said Julie McDonald, Executive Director of the Juniper Outreach Foundation. “Thank you to the Consigli team for coming in here and meticulously cleaning and plastering the walls and putting the shelving up to make this great sunny space.”

“Consigli Construction is committed to building beyond ourselves, and the Consigli Foundation bolsters that mission by giving back to the communities where our teams live and work,” said Michael Fales, Chief Human Resources Officer at Consigli Construction Co., Inc. “No child should have to worry where their next meal is coming from, and the Consigli Foundation is grateful to the Juniper Outreach Foundation and Stop & Shop for its work to support children and families in the Worcester area, and to have had the opportunity to partner on this meaningful cause.”

“This is certainly a labor of love that began with UMass Chan two years ago, and we’re so appreciative that others like Juniper and Consigli Construction have joined us in this effort,” said Jennifer Brogan, Stop & Shop director of community relations.
