Mark your calendars.

Tuesday, April 2nd - Ken’s N.Y. Deli & Pizzeria will be generously hosting a fundraiser to support Bedford Rotary’s Hope for the Hungry meal packaging effort aimed at addressing food insecurity locally. Ken’s, located at 72 The Great Road in Bedford, is donating 10% of all proceeds from 4:00 – 9:00 p.m., eat-in and take-out, to this year’s packaging project.

Plan that evening’s dinner at Ken’s. Bring the family and friends. Order take-out. You’ll be supporting Rotary, helping the hungry and food insecure who struggle to feed themselves and their families, and you’ll be supporting a worthy local business.

Saturday, April 27th – at its Bedford campus from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00, Middlesex Community College hosts the Hope for the Hungry meal packaging event. And, with the event just two months away, Bedford Rotary’s event team is ramping up the necessary planning and preparations. Read on to learn how you can get involved by donating or volunteering. 

Sponsorships, both corporate and individual, are immediate priorities. To meet our target of packaging 50,000 meals, we’re still short of the funding needed. Any donation, no matter how large or small, will go a long way toward making our effort possible.

Planning with our project partner, Meals of Hope, is ongoing, as is our partner collaboration with Middlesex Community College. MCC will also be one of our project beneficiaries, receiving packaged meals and collected personal care items for their MCC Food Pantry on the Bedford and Lowell campuses.

NOW - VOLUNTEER!! Be part of our packaging party!!

Hope for the Hungry relies on volunteer participation to package meals and help the event run smoothly. It’s fun for people of all ages, individuals, families, work colleagues, and club and organization members.
