Thanks to the hard work of our volunteers, over 60,000 food insecure community members received fresh, nutritious produce this summer. We were recently reminded of their impact by one our hunger relief partners, Community Servings. After receiving fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and squash, Kevin Conner, Director of Food Services, remarked:
“Our partnership with Community Harvest Project enriches our meals with top-quality local produce. Community Servings’ culinary and nutrition teams use the fresh, local produce to carefully construct 15 different diets to accommodate the nutritional and medical needs of our clients suffering from a variety of critical and chronic illnesses.”
Everyday your work helped food insecure individuals live healthy lives. Hunger is an ongoing issue that does not end just because the summer does, which is why our work never stops and we continue to take steps to ensure that every neighbor has access to the food they need. Nevertheless, we can’t do it without your help.
That is why today, we are embarking on our One Step Further Campaign. Our goal is raise $50,000 by December 31. We know you are as passionate about hunger relief we are and we hope you be willing to take your passion one step further to make a donation to feed more individuals and families in need.
We are beyond excited to share that your donation today will have double the impact, thanks to a generous match! Major General (US Army, Retired) Robert and Karen Catalanotti, Assumption College Trustee and Community Harvest Project Team Leader, respectively, is proud and honored to support our hunger relief efforts this year. The first donations up to $10,000 will be matched dollar by dollar, to make their impact go even further.
Please join us today by making a donation! Your support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of food insecure community members.
