Our May-June Dedicated Offering is for The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts
The Food Bank’s mission is to feed our neighbors in need and lead the community to end hunger. It is the leading provider of emergency food and other food assistance to those at risk of hunger in Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin and Berkshire counties. Before the pandemic, its annual food distribution grew annually at an average of 6% but recently this has increased to 29%. This increased demand has led to plans for more warehouse space with development of a new headquarters at the Chicopee River Business Park. The Executive Director, Andrew Morehouse, and another Food Bank representative will bring us up to date on the new build and current operations on May 9 and June 20 via Zoom. Donations can be made to the UUSA and sent by check to P.O. Box 502, Amherst, MA 01004-0502 or on our website: https://www.uusocietyamherst.org/connection/donate. Thank you so much for sharing what you can.
