Hi Everyone, First and foremost, I'd like to thank everyone who donated to this cause and supported me in my fundraising efforts.  I really  See more

THE STORY:

The Food Pantry at the Bedford Presbyterian Church is a well-coordinated effort between 5 area churches, local organizations including the Lion's Club and the Boys Scouts, and individuals who all want to help those facing hunger or food insecurity within our community. These individuals and families may include our family, friends and neighbors. Personally, I was shocked about a few statistics in my community. First, I did not know that over 1,200 adults and children qualify for Medicaid, 160 families including 289 children qualify for the free school lunch program, and nearly 350 adults and children qualify for food stamps in the town of Bedford. Secondly, I did not know the difficulty of families utilizing other food pantries (like those located in Manchester) since they are not geared to serving non-residents. Lastly, for a small town of 21,000 people these figures are disturbing when towns like Duxbury, MA, with similar demographics to Bedford, serve 250 to 300 families on a regular basis. Providing access to a basic need like food to all members of our community is a strong belief of mine. I am personally behind this effort and my family and I are going to match every donation dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000 to reach a fundraising goal of $10,000 which will go directly to providing food for those who need it most. Please consider joining me in this initiative to jumpstart a worthy and long-term effort. -Brent Kiley
