This is a great chance to enjoy a fun event, save on your holiday shopping, and support the Food Pantry at the same time. Thanks, Bedford Whole Foods!
We are astounded by this year's Turkey Trot, which raised over $6,000 for the Food Pantry. Profound thanks to organizer Rich Hamilton, and all the participants and supporters who made it such a great success. The Turkey Trot is our most important fundraiser of the year, and we greatly appreciate the efforts of everyone involved!
Bedford Whole Foods continued their tradtion of supporting the Food Pantry and Community Dinners by donating reusable bags for our Thanksgiving pantry. These bags make it much easier for clients to carry home their turkeys, and will continue to be useful the rest of the year. Thanks again!
The Food Pantry will be closed on Thanksgiving, and there is no Community Dinner that night. The Thanksgiving Pantry distribution will be Monday, November 24. Pantry clients should have already received detailed instructions about the Monday pantry. Anyone with questions may call 781-275-7355 and leave a message.
