Built in the 1930’s, the Mary Ellen McCormack public housing community in South Boston is beginning a truly transformative redevelopment. WinnDevelopment, the Mary Ellen McCormack Task Force, the Boston Housing Authority, and the United Way have partnered to create a true Community of Opportunity for the present and future residents of Mary Ellen McCormack. Over the past year, United Way and WinnDevelopment have been working to help residents voice what resources and programs they want in this Community of Opportunity as the redevelopment progresses. As part of this early work, one key challenge within the community is access to high-quality, affordable food.
