Our community has much to offer. We are invested in finding ways to support connection, and champion those already doing important work in our neighborhood.
FIELDS CORNER PRESENTS
We wish to express our deep gratitude to Travis Lee, owner of 1463-1469 Dorchester Ave, formally the Gallagher Building, for allowing Fields Corner Main Street and its partners to utilize this space over the past year. Both the Dorchester Community Fridge and the Black Lives Matter In Color mural have reimagined the space, demonstrating the collective power of the community here in Fields Corner.
Dorchester Community Fridge is made up of a grassroots group of approximately 80+ volunteers who help maintain, clean, and stock this free food resource daily since September 2020. Dorchester Community Fridge has facilitated the distribution of food for the past nine months, increasing the volume to about 2,000 pounds a week within the last 3. The fridge is accessible 24/7 and operates on the basis that people take what they need and leave what they can according to their assessment of need. PLEASE NOTE: the Dorchester Community will be relocating to a new space a few blocks away. Stay tuned for more information!
Black Lives Matter In Color mural - artist Jorge Morfin of Savin Hill painted portraits of 100 individuals who were victims of police violence across the country.
This property will soon be under constriction and turned into condos with retail space on the first floor. For more information, please visit this link: http://www.bostonplans.org/projects/development-projects/1463-1469-dorchester-avenue
