The Paulist Center: Home of Wed. Night Supper Club
YOU AND I CAN HELP HUNGRY CHILDREN AND FAMILIES ACCESS THE FOOD THEY NEED!
More than half a million people have filed for unemployment in Massachusetts in the past four weeks. As a result...
38% of MA residents are now experiencing food insecurity because of the COVID-19 crisis. This is unprecedented.
Project Bread is working with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and many schools and community partners to provide families with access to school meals through 1,193 sites while schools are closed until May 4th. Additionally, Project Bread supports other programs, such as our Paulist Center Supper Club, which is currently providing around 180 meals a week (As a team, we need to raise at least $38,000 during this fundraising event to keep our Supper Club operating next year). Project Bread is an essential resource, and it's only because of fundraisers like this that they are able to answer these calls for help.
The physical Walk for Hunger has been canceled this year due to “physical distancing;" however, our team is unifying using social media—such as Facebook—and technology in order to support our struggling neighbors. The biggest action you can make is simply joining our team at support.projectbread.org/goto/PCSupperClub. It’s free even if you cannot afford to give money, will allow you to “donate” space on your Facebook and other pages to help us get the message out. We can help you set it up once you linked up to our team to show you are interested.
Although the physical part is canceled, we can still cross the May 3rd “Finish Line” (with your donation or by you joining our team) to make a difference!
