Hebron Food Pantry invites you to join them on Saturday, September 8, 2012 and “Miss-a-Meal” to support the fight against hunger. For each dollar donated, Hebron can purchase about $20.00 worth of food through the Greater Boston Food Bank. For the cost of a meal at home, estimated to be $5.00, they can buy twenty times that amount – about $100.00 of food. For the cost of one meal out at a restaurant, say $25.00, Hebron can buy $500.00 worth of groceries.
The need is dramatically increasing. Hebron is currently serving over 225 individuals and families each and every week of the year, providing them with food from all five food groups, including a selection of meats, produce, and dairy. Only with expanded community support can this need be met.
Drop off your donation at the Hebron Food Pantry Open House on Saturday, September 8th, at 11 Sanford Street, Attleboro, from 9am to 1pm. Tour the pantry while you are there. Hebron is located across from the YMCA, just off North Main Street. Or you can mail the value of your missed meal to the Hebron Food Pantry, P.O. Box 92, Attleboro, MA 02703. For more information about how you can help, call 508 223-4257 and talk with Michelle Burch, Director.
