The MutualOne Charitable Foundation has awarded $10,000 to support the “Eat Fresh” initiative at A Place To Turn in Natick, said Foundation Chairman Robert P. Lamprey.

The Framingham-based foundation's grant will cover the cost of providing fresh fruits and vegetables for A Place To Turn clients for an entire year, said Lamprey, in a press release.

Low income families and individuals unable to meet their basic needs of food and clothing are referred to A Place To Turn by a network of social service agencies, health care providers, schools and clergy,  said Executive Director Joanne Barry in a press release.

Eighty percent of those throughout the MetroWest area served by the nonprofit are from Framingham or Natick, she added.

The MutualOne Foundation has provided more than $33,000 to help stock the food pantry in the past five years, including providing six months’ of funding for the “Eat Fresh” program in 2011.

The $10,000 grant to A Place to Turn was among awards totaling $59,200 made by the Foundation in its most recent round of funding.  

The MutualOne Charitable Foundation is a continuation of the Framingham Co-operative Bank Charitable Foundation following the 2012 merger of Framingham Co-operative Bank and Natick Federal Savings Bank.

Since it was originally established in 1998, the Foundation has donated over $2.3 million to charitable, educational, and civic initiatives that improve and enhance the quality of life in Framingham, Natick, and surrounding communities.
