The Social and Environment Action Committee is continuing our Food Security initiative.
There is an increased need at the food pantries due to the pandemic. There is an urgent need for increased donations. Food insecurity in Eastern MA, including Cape Cod, is now estimated to be 1 in 8 residents and 1 in 6 children. Our local pantries are serving more than 500 families. Every dollar the local pantries spend can buy three healthy meals from the Greater Boston Food Bank We ask UU Falmouth members and friends to consider making or increasing your donations to the local food pantries.
Will you consider taking a family in need ‘out to dinner’ once or twice a month by sending a $10, $20 or $50 check monthly to your local food pantry?
- Send a monthly check, from October-June directly to the pantry of your choice. On the memo line mark UU Falmouth for Food. We would appreciate knowing of your support of the SEAC initiative. OR
- Send a monthly check, from October-June to Chris Wheeler. Email Chris via firstname.lastname@example.org. Make the check payable to UUFF-SEAC and put a note: “SAC-Food Security” in the memo line. SEAC will distribute the funds to the five food pantries below:
