The Greater Boston Food Bank no longer is able to meet the demand for meat at the Hebron Working Persons’ Food Pantry. Hebron serves 250 families and individuals each week – the largest pantry in the greater Attleboro area. To meet their clients’ needs, meat has to be purchased through the COOP program, which is expensive.
The 2015 cost for meat has averaged $1,125 per month, but since July has increased to $1,700 per month. This increased cost has to be paid out of operating funds, which cannot support that demand. Hebron needs help to “Meet the Need for Meat!”
$25 will buy 8 pounds of ground beef, or a variety of sausages, meatballs and chicken! That’s enough to provide four working families with meat for a few meals. As the winter heating season nears, many of these working families find their budgets being squeezed, or hours being reduced, or experience layoffs in seasonal outdoor work. What a big difference that meat makes to someone who is living paycheck to paycheck.
Hebron anticipates the cost of offering meat to our Working Person’s Food Pantry clients for the winter months (October through March) to be about $8,500. Any help that the community can give will make a real difference. Donations are tax deductible, and every penny will go towards a Working Person’s Food Pantry meat purchase!
Donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 92, Attleboro, MA 02703, or help can be given on the Hebron website hebronfoodpantry.org Donations can be split into recurring payments to assist all winter long!
HFP 15 Years of Fighting Hunger
October 25, 2014
Hebron Food Pantry celebrates 15 years of fighting hunger! Thanks to donors like you, the Hebron Food Pantry has been able to provide food assistance to the working people and seniors of the greater Attleboro area for 15 years! HFP started in Hebronville, with a unique vision: to help working persons and families have enough food on their tables. Working people often don’t qualify for assistance from other sources. Today, Hebron serves seniors living on a fixed income, as well, making it the largest food pantry in the greater Attleboro area, helping 275 individuals and families every week.
Hebron recently purchased a bigger truck to carry the 3 tons of food needed each week to meet the growing demand for assistance. The truck picks up from the Greater Boston Food Bank, local stores, and distributors. Hebron also shares their truck with other local food pantries.
As part of their 15th anniversary celebration, Hebron is asking supporters to make a donation towards the cost of the truck. Checks may be sent to Hebron Food Pantry, P.O. Box 92, Attleboro, MA 02703.
You also are invited to join Hebron folks at the Attleboro Farmer’s Market, Finberg Field, on Saturday, October 25th between 9AM and 1PM. Events are:
· New truck unveiling to accept food donations that you can place inside the truck
· Special anniversary prize basket raffle in the Hebron booth
· Cake cutting celebration at 11 AM - Join in the fun.
