Hunger Heroes

Hunger Heroes Spring

On Saturday, April 6th, volunteers will gather to package 1,000 kid meal packs to provide with students over the spring vacation week. Meal packs will be distributed through by the Hunger Commission to local school districts throughout Greater New Bedford.

Each meal pack will include: peanut butte & jelly, mac & cheese, cereal, granola bars, applesauce & fruit cups, and kid friendly snacks like dried fruit, pretzels, trail mix, etc.

Food for the meals is collected through a large-scale community effort of more than 20 food drives and the Hunger Heroes Food Drop with Fun 107 & WBSM.
