1.6 million people in the Commonwealth report they are struggling to get enough to eat during the pandemic, according to a new survey by the Greater Boston Food Bank. That’s an increase of 55% from 2019 to 2020, with people of color and families with children are being disproportionately impacted.
1.6 million people in our state are struggling with food insecurity each day! We want to do something about that.
At REUNION, on the 5th Sunday of the month, instead of our usual gathering, we spend that morning serving with our local partners, and this month, here is how we are going to help address this problem:
We are inviting you to join us in supporting two of our partners — Pine Street Inn and Daniel’s Table. These two organizations are addressing the issue of food insecurity in Boston and Framingham by preparing and serving nearly 25,000 meals each and every week! They need us to restock their pantries in order to continue meeting this urgent need in our community.
We are asking you to donate:
- Healthy snacks – granola bars, nuts, & healthy cereal
- Hot drinks – hot chocolate, tea, & coffee
- Non-perishable items – brown rice, whole wheat spaghetti, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, salad dressing
You can ship your donations to:
Reunion Christian Church

Please have items shipped by May 30th!
Or you can drop off your donations at two locations on Sunday, the 30th, between 10 am and 1 pm. There will be a pastor at each location to receive your donation and to say hi!
