Jonathan Tetrault and Katherine Walker (on the right side of the photo) from the Greater Boston Food Bank presented Loaves & Fishes with a $10,000 grant for the expansion of our walk-in cooler / freezer expansion. Accepting the check for Loaves & Fishes are Executive Director Patricia Stern, Food Coordinator Paul Niemira and Board of Directors President Jim Hanlon.
Thank you for helping us fight hunger one bag at a time. This year we received over 18,000 pounds of food valued in excess of $30,000, a 61% increase over last year!
Thank you to Laddawn, located in Devens, who donated 18,000 bags which were placed in nearly all residential mailboxes in our service area.
Thank you to our local post offices, Loaves & Fishes Coordinator Nancy Ohringer, the many volunteers who supported the effort, and to everyone who donated.
