The ninth annual Bedford Turkey Trot, a fun run/walk held Thanksgiving morning, was a resounding success, as close to 400 participants enjoyed their Turkey Day exercise and raised over $10,000 for the food pantry. Both participation and donations were dramatically higher than last year's results, the previous record. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all the participants and volunteers, and especially race organizer Rich Hamilton. The Turkey Trot is our single biggest fundraiser, and provides important support to our mission of providing food to local people in need. Read more about this year's race in this article from the Bedford Citizen.
The Food Pantry will be closed for Thanksgiving this Thursday, and there will be no Community Dinner. Details about this week's special food distribution have been communicated to current clients. We wish all our clients and volunteers a lovely holiday!
