Green Bean Gala goes virtual - March 6th

Named for our school-bus-turned-mobile-food-pantry, the Green Bean Gala is an annual fundraiser to benefit 20 Essex County food pantries working to alleviate hunger in Essex County. Funds raised:

  • build the infrastructure needed to provide more fresh and healthy food, and other essential items, requested by the pantries;
  • support a monthly forum for pantry managers to come together and collaborate on ideas and challenges; and
  • help address the root causes of hunger in our community.

One of the places where MEND helps with food distribution is a small church near me.  Prior to covid, I would see one to four people waiting in line.    When covid hit jobs hard, I saw the line increase to over fifty.   So, lots of people are out of work and can use help.
