We invite you to join the Farmington Valley Hunger Collaborative in supporting our first annual food packing event. One out of every four or five children in our country is hungry (38,000 in Hartford County alone). FVAMC is proud to partner with Outreach Inc. – Kids Care in their mission to feed them all. Outreach Inc. organizes food packaging events and then distributes the meals to regional food banks, local food shelves and Mobile Foodshare.
Our goal is to package 25,000 meals here in the heart of the Farmington Valley. In honor of Martin Luther King Day of Service we have chosen to hold this event on Saturday, January 17th, 2015.
