United Way of Greater New Bedford is hosting the Annual Hunger Heroes Project: Spring Edition. Families will be volunteering together to assemble 1,000 meal packs for local kids to have over School Vacation week. Packs will include grab and go items such as granola bars and fruit cups as well as low prep meal options such as mac & cheese. All meal packs will be distributed by school districts in Greater New Bedford.
In preparation for the event, United Way is partnering with Fun 107 and WBSM for the Hunger Heroes Food Drop. Community members are encouraged to pick up a few items off our shopping list to donate .
What we need: Cereal, Granola Bars, Boxed Mac & Cheese, Fruit and Applesauce Cups, Peanut Butter, Jelly
We ask that all items are the average size, not the family/value size. No glass
