How We're Doubling Our Impact

Even in these difficult times, the power of compassion and kindness can have an enormous impact on our communities. Through our Double Impact Initiative, the Breaktime family is ready to help our communities thrive once again while providing employment to those who need it most. Find out what we're doing to help below.





To expand on our work with prepared meals, associates at Breaktime are preparing and distributing tons of fresh produce and groceries (in family-sized bundles) each week to food-insecure populations across Boston. Working with grassroots community partners, Breaktime has rapidly scaled our operations to further support the food resilience of our community. This new opportunity also enables our young adults to further develop leadership, operational, and logistics experience as they work purposefully to support their community.



The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated food-insecurity throughout Massachusetts. Together with partners at Community Work Services, the Breaktime team is producing and serving thousands of nutritious meals each week to support both our communities and heroic healthcare and shelter workers across Boston.

how we're

keeping our team safe

The safety and well-being of our team members and meal recipients is our top priority. Breaktime ensures that all team members are provided with stable, single-unit housing at shelters. In our kitchen and on our deliveries, we follow rigorous safety and sanitization procedures.
