We all know that a helping hand can make a world of a difference during tough times. Luckily there are caring people like those at Faith Fellowship Ministries International, who held their second annual food drive on September 29.
Members of the community were encouraged to donate non-perishables such as protein or fruit bars, dry cereal or granola, peanut butter, dried fruit, canned juices, and pasteurized milk. All donors also received delicious refreshments. This was a great idea as it helps out at the moment while collecting even more food for those in need!
What makes this event even better is that it was held during Hunger Action Month. Move For Hunger is dedicated to supporting our nation's food banks year-round, but Hunger Action Month provides us with a unique opportunity to rally together under a united front.
There are more than 650,000 food insecure people in Massachusetts, including 1 in 8 children. We send a wholehearted thank you out to those at Faith Fellowship Ministries International and all who helped greatly by donating!
Would you like to help us fight hunger this holiday season? Hold a food drive!
