MARLBOROUGH – Thrive Support and Advocacy has presented a 2023 Standing Ovation Award to Congressman Jim McGovern.
Thrive, which is a nonprofit that empowers youth and adults with developmental disabilities, said that McGovern received the award as a result of his efforts to raise awareness about food insecurity, ensure universal access to free school meals and his support of the Flourish at Thrive food pantry.
The food pantry was opened by Thrive with the help of Worcester Polytechnic Institute. It is located at Thrive’s office on Grove Street in Worcester.
The Standing Ovation Awards were created by Thrive to recognize their outstanding and supportive stakeholders.
