Berkshire Pay It Forward is a committee of volunteers, formed by members of Local 12325 of the United Steelworkers Union, who have mobilized to support and provide nutritious meals to families who have been rendered unemployed by COVID-19 layoffs.

Berkshire Pay It Forward is collecting donations to cover the cost of food at their planned Community Meal events, which will provide prepackaged meals to community members in need.

Our fifth pop up event is scheduled to take place this Saturday, May 23rd, 1:00 pm at the Home Depot, Wal-Mart entrance, 555 Hubbard Ave, Pittsfield.

They will prepackaged frozen meals to hand out to families facing unemployment due to COVID-19 layoffs.


This week’s packaged meal will contain lasagna, vegetable, and dessert. Chef Brandon Horn will also be donating homemade Pasta Fagioli and bread. All meals are **FREE OF CHARGE** available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

In order to maintain proper social distancing and safety protocol, meals will be prepackaged and ready for a drive up to pick up; all volunteers will be wearing masks and gloves.

Berkshire Pay It Forward is asking those who are able to donate to this cause. No amount is too little or too much. The more money we raise the more families we can help. With your continued donations, we can make a difference together, paying it forward.
