From Community Service: National Stamp Out Hunger Drive- Sat., May 12, 12-3 p.m.



“Today, thousands of people in Massachusetts, and millions across the United States, experience hunger because they cannot afford adequate food. Local families are struggling even more this year to put food on the table because of the recent economic downturn and the high cost of living in the state. As the impact of the recession continues to be felt among thousands of Massachusetts families, Project Bread is working to ensure that everyone, regardless of age or background, has regular access to healthy food.”   (www.projectbread.org)

The "Status Report on Hunger in Massachusetts 2010," the state's annual report card on hunger, revealed that more than 660,000 people in Massachusetts are at risk for hunger.

On May 12, Nobles will again be the host drop off location for the National Stamp Out Hunger Drive. Each year, the second Saturday in May is a day when all citizens have an opportunity, with the help of their letter carrier, to easily donate food to needy families in their community. Since 2000, Noble and Greenough School has partnered with the Letter Carriers Union and the Dedham Food Pantry to complete the local effort of the largest one day food collectionin the nation. Volunteers are needed to unload trucks and sort food. Please come to the Buildings and Grounds Garage from 12-3 p.m. Bring the whole family!
