Food Pantry 5k
EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2017
The Food Pantry 5k Run/Walk is an important fundraising effort organized by the Society of St Vincent de Paul to support the Sacred Heart Food Pantry. It provides an opportunity for walkers and runners to participate in the mission of feeding the hungry in the communities we serve, while raising awareness of the challenges faced by the nation's needy. Each month the Pantry provides food to nearly 500 families. During the last 12 months, 35,000 bags of food were distributed to over 1,000 households in the towns of Carver, Lakeville, Middleboro and Rochester Massachusetts.
