North End Waterfront (NEW) Health distributed a range of PPE supplies to restaurants throughout the North End on Wednesday, December 9, 2020.
The effort follows September’s virtual Taste of the North End food festival, from which a portion of funds raised was directed to assisting the neighborhood restaurants as they face the immense challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each bag packed and distributed by NEW Health contained two boxes of masks, one box of gloves, and six face shields for restaurant staff. In addition to being a major supporter of the 2020 Taste of the North End, State Rep. Aaron Michlewitz also joined NEW Health in delivering the packages throughout the neighborhood.
