Jason P. Mendes Memorial Fund hosting Food Drive at Bowl-A-Thon!!!!!

M.O. Food Pantry’s Event Partner Program (EPP) is kicking into high gear with our second partnering organization hosting a Food Drive. The Jason P. Mendes Memorial Fund will be hosting their annual Bowl-A-Thon on Saturday June 21st from 7pm until closing at the New Bedford Wonder Bowl. As part of this year’s event they are joining the fight against local hunger, and asking all of their event participants to bring down a jar of peanut butter (Food Panty #1 need) or any other perishable food items when they come to bowl.

This great organization has an amazing night planned, including giveaways, auction items, and did we mention the Bowling. They have a fantastic local band coming in for this year’s event, The Relics, are always a crowd favorite. The team at the Jason P. Mendes Memorial Fund are inviting everyone down to Wonder Bowl, even if you are not bowling please come down to enjoy the band, possibly make a donation to the cause and enjoy the evening.

For more information on the event you can contact Karen Joseph at R.A. Mitchell Co. at (774) 930-3794, or go to www.jasonpmendesmemorialfund.com for more details.

Fairhaven Acushnet Little League opening day food drive!!!!

Hi everyone, just a reminder that our first Event Partner Program (EPP) participant, Fairhaven Acushnet Little League is hosting a food drive at Pope Park on May 3rd during their opening day festivities. Make sure to bring a non-perishable food item to opening day for your chance to win one of two Dick's Sporting Goods gift certificates.

We will be rolling out a couple things at this event:

1. Our new MO Life Food Pantry Awareness Tent. It will be the central point for food collections, sponsorship info, and general information about how people can help our fight against hunger.

2. As communicated at the 2014 MO Life Ball, we will be using this event to kick off our Household Sponsorship Program (HSP). This program allows families a chance to help in the costly fight against local hunger by making a $25 donation (.50 per week/per year). Don't forget to put your HSP participation emblems in your car windows so everyone knows about the program!!!!!! See you all there.

Can't wait to see everyone on Saturday. Rain date is Sunday.

The M.O. Food Pantry is excited to announce the launch of our newest program. The Event Partner Program (EPP). The Event Partner Program is designed to assist groups, organizations, etc., that have an interest in hosting events that benefit the M.O. Food Pantry, but may need some assistance.

Groups/organizations range from individual classrooms of local schools, to major organizations developed continued support efforts. Events range from food drives to car washes, from spare coin collection to the holiday road races. No idea is to big or to small when it comes to supporting the local fight against hunger.

If you have a group, organization, or even just a collection of friends wanting to make a difference though an event, please don't hesitate to contact us. We can help guide you though the process, from idea to completion. Message us here on our page, or contact us at 508.992.0122 and join the fight.

Yesterday the MO Food Pantry distributed food for Thanksgiving Dinners to over 200 families. 160 frozen turkeys and other preparation foods were handed out, along with numerous frozen chickens and the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal. We couldn't have done all this without the strong support of the Hunger Commission and our dedicated volunteers!
