This Year we are doing thing a bit different...
a Supper for Six DRIVE-THRU! On February 2nd bring your bags over to the United Way office and we will grab them from your trunk. If you are unable to come on the day of you are welcome to drop your bags filled with food in the entry way of the United Way office, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
What is it?
Supper for Six, United Way’s annual food drive coordinated by Women’s Way. This food drive collects grocery bags full of everything folks need to make dinner— and sometimes lunch or breakfast— for a family of six. We hold this food drive in February every year when families face a week-long gap of school meal programs during the winter break. This year the collection will take place on February 2nd, 2020. (Snow date Feb. 3rd.)
How does it work?
Fill a reusable grocery bag with non-perishable food items to feed a family of six dinner. Some dinner ideas include: pasta, canned vegetables, jarred pasta sauce, rice, beans, tuna, boxed mac and cheese, boxed or canned soups or broths. If you find your bag with extra space or yourself with a few extra dollars you could also add: oatmeal, applesauce, granola bars, peanut butter, nuts, canned fruit, pancake mix, jam, or a bottle of juice.
We’ll officially begin accepting donations throughout January up until February 2nd for our drive thru event.
Who receives the bags?
Donations benefit United Way of Franklin County partner agencies including: Community Action’s Center for Self Reliance, Franklin County Community Meals, Salvation Army of Greenfield, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Franklin County, Mary Lyon Foundation, and Montague Catholic Social Ministries.
