Recently, the Greater Boston Food Bank awarded the WAKEFIELD FOOD PANTRY a matching grant to purchase a utility van we can use to pick up and distribute food to those in need. Please help us raise $12,850 to match the grant amount so we can buy a van that will enable us to expand our food programs while easing the transportation burden on our volunteers.
Currently, we rely on our volunteers’ personal cars to move thousands of pounds of food:
– to our mobile food pantries at senior housing facilities
– to homebound individuals
– from supermarkets
– from local businesses
– from local collection sites
A van would greatly improve our ability to transport food more efficiently and easily.
