A little over six months ago I posted on Facebook that I had some bowls that I would send out if people donated to their food banks. The first day you all donated over $700.
A few weeks ago I set the goal of hitting $10k in total donation by the end of the year. Then I decided I wanted to do it by Thanksgiving. You did it. As of November 24, 2020 the total donations to food banks by Bowls For Food participants surpassed $10,000
There is still so much to do, and so much hunger in the US right now. But for a moment, everyone who has donated should feel like they have helped someone in this terrible time.
Here are all the recipients of your donations:
Alameda County Community Food Bank, Arlington EATS, Ashburnham Food Pantry, Beyond Hunger, Bridges Outreach, Brookline Food Pantry, Canton Area Helpline Inc, Central Texas Food Bank, Commonpoint Queens, Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, Dedham Food Pantry, Elizabeth Peabody House, Food Bank for New York City, Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, Food Bank of Hudson Valley, Food Bank of Iowa, God’s Love We Deliver, Good Shepard Food Bank, Greater Boston Food Back, Greater Boston Food Bank, Harvest on Vine, Hoosier Hills Food Bank, Idyllwild HELP Center, Los Angeles Regional Food Bank , Marshfield Food Pantry, My Brother’s Table, Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter, New Hampshire Food Bank, Norwood Food Pantry, Oregon Food Bank, PADS, Philabundance, Pittsburgh Food Bank, Prescott-Joseph Center for Community Enhancement, SF Marin Food Bank, San Diego Food Bank, St. Joseph’s Church Food Pantry, The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, The Ecumenical Community Food Pantry of Norwood, The Food Bank of Western Mass, The Open Door, The Sharing Cupboard, Toni’s Kitchen, United Way of Tri-County, Utah Food Bank, Walpole Community Food Pantry, Wayside Food Programs, West Side Campaign Against Hunger, Westside Food Bank, Weymouth Food Pantry, Woman to Woman at Food Bank For New York City, Yachats Food Pantry
