Over One Ton of Food Collected by United Way

TSM – Volunteers sort food outside of Fairhaven’s Stop & Shop

Over 2,200 pounds of food has been collected thanks to folks who stopped by the Hunger Commission truck at the Fairhaven Stop & Shop.

Volunteers from the United Way of Greater New Bedford spent the day Friday collecting non-perishable food items to be given to local food pantries.

Lisa Calvano, Director of Finance and Administration with United Way of Greater New Bedford tells WBSM News donations are needed throughout the year.

750,000 pounds of food was delivered by the Hunger Commssion last year but the shelves must be continually stocked.

The food will be distributed to the pantries based on which organization needs it most.

The food drive was part of the United Way’s “Live United Week”.
