November VIA Event: Meal Packing (40,000 Meals!)

This November, HCH's Values in Action program is proud to partner with the Boston Interfaith Campus Coalition and Kids Care to package meals for the food insecure in Massachusetts.

The Status Report on Hunger in Massachusetts notes that in 2010, 10.8 percent of households were food insecure. This is the highest rate recorded in the Commonwealth since this data was first collected in 1995, according to the Project Bread website.

This year, we will come together around our shared value of service and package more meals than ever -- 40,000 -- in time for Thanksgiving. But in order to do so, we need to raise $10,000 (that's 25 cents per meal!) before then. Please consider making a donation to this incredibly important cause (please write "VIA event" in the "special instructions" box when you donate online using PayPal). Or you can also write a check to "Outreach, Inc. - Kids Care" and give it to a member of the staff. Please note that this drive is separate from our annual year-end fund drive, and all of the money goes to Kids Care for the cost of food.

And join us on Sunday, November 18 from 12-6pm at 59 Shepard Street Cambridge, MA 02138. This is a great all-ages event (bring kids!) and a wonderful way to put your/humanistic values into action with your whole family!
