Friends Feeding Families is an annual campaign of Catholic Charities. In 2016, Catholic Charities of Boston served over 3 million pounds of food to 110,000 of our neediest neighbors of all faiths at our food pantries. Thanks to Friends Feeding Families, our clients don’t have to decide between paying their utility bill and putting dinner on the table.
To become involved, please contact Will Southall at 781-380-4778 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help end hunger in your community.
We rely on community support to serve those who rely on our services. We’re proud that you are a part of this community.
How can you help?
Host a Brown Bag Party in your Home or Work
Invite your friends to support our food pantries by bringing a bag of groceries or by purchasing gift cards. We’ll provide you with fact sheets and a speaker. As a token of our appreciation, each party host will receive an official “Friends Feeding Families Brown Bag” tote.
Fill a Brown Bag with Groceries
Fill a bag with non-perishable foods from our list and we’ll make sure it is given to a neighbor in need.
Join us for our cook-off style “Hunger Chopped” events, which offer both sponsorship and individual ticket opportunities.
Brown Bag Sponsorship
Sponsor the official “Friends Feeding Families Brown Bag”, a reusable tote bag that is given to supporters and friends. We are proud to include the logos of sponsors on the brown bags.
Gift Card Collections
Host a Gift Card Collection at your company or organization. Our food pantries use gift cards to supplement donated food and to replenish high-demand items. Donated gift cards, in any denomination, are always appreciated.
