PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WLNE) — Pawtucket Mayor Don Grebien announced that the city will partner with DoorDash to battle hunger.

DoorDash will work with the mayor to give Community Credits gift cards to nonprofits to help parts of the Pawtucket community.

The gift cards will help to ensure the local food delivery for those who need it.

“No one in Pawtucket should be going hungry or lack access to healthy, nutritional food options,” Grebien said. “Unfortunately, we know that some Pawtucket families are struggling and that’s why we’re so excited to partner with DoorDash and their innovative Project DASH program to help address food insecurity in our community.”

Project DASH works to broaden food access across the United States.

““We’re proud that DoorDash has led on this issue for years through action and advocacy, and excited to now partner with mayors across the United States by providing resources to help combat hunger and support for local communities,” said Elizabeth Jarvis-Shean, vice president of communications and policy at DoorDash.
