Hunger Commission ‘Stuff the Truck’
Today until 6 p.m. the New Bedford Hunger Commission is hosting 'Stuff the Truck' at Stop & Shop in Fairhaven. They are looking to fill the truck with non-perishable items like cereal, canned meats, macaroni & cheese, pasta, pasta sauce, peanut butter, rice and tuna fish. All year long the Hunger commission help fill the local food pantry's with these items and today they are making it easy for you to drop off your items. The Commission will also have a collection jar on hand for you to donate cash or a check if you can't make it to the store.
Last year the Hunger Commission delivered 750,000 pounds of food to local programs, with a number that high the demand for food is constant all year long.
Hope to see you at the truck!
