THE FOOD BANK OF WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS
Since 1982, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts has been feeding our neighbors in need and leading the community to end hunger. The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts provides food to their members in Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire counties. These independent pantries, meal sites and shelters are on the front lines of emergency food assistance in our region, providing sustenance to individuals, families, seniors, children and people with disabilities (including veterans) to lead healthy and meaningful lives.
The food that they distribute comes from a number of different sources, including the state government (MEFAP), the federal government (TEFAP), local farms, their own Food Bank farm, retail and wholesale food businesses, community organizations, and individual donations. Once received and processed, the food is distributed to members, or through their own direct-to-client programs (such as our Mobile Food Bank or Brown Bag: Food for Elders).
Alekman DiTusa has been involved in supporting the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts every year since 2010 and will continue to do so going into the future. In the past, we have sponsored numerous events including Will Bike for Food, Monte’s March and numerous other fundraising events. We invite you to join us in supporting the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts by visiting their website at https://www.foodbankwma.org/ and making a donation. Thank you.
