Nantucket Resource Partnership Awarded $250K Grant For Food Insecurity

Nantucket Current • July 27, 2023

The Nantucket Resource Partnership (NRP), a non-profit that aims to develop community-wide systems to provide social services across the island, has received a $250,000 Food Security and Infrastructure Grant from The Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.

“We’re quite pleased, very pleased,” Brian Lenane, president of NRP’s board, told the Current this week.

The grant is restricted to the development of technology focused on food systems and security. NRP plans to use the grant to determine what specific investments would go the furthest to reducing food insecurity on Nantucket.
