100+ Women Who Care Monadnock provided $12,000 in meals to those who in need while also supporting local restaurants. The Community Meals to Go! program brings together local organizations and local restaurants to provide cold and frozen meals for those experiencing food insecurity.
Jennifer Sandlin, president of the Peterborough Fire and Rescue Association, and Karen Hatcher, community and economic development coordinator for the town of Peterborough, say, “Community Meals to Go! is a community at its best.”
Participating organizations include Community Meals to Go! the River Center, the Peterborough Food Pantry, the Peterborough Fire and Rescue Association (PFRA), ConVal School District, and the Cornucopia Project.
The $12,000 donation from 100+ Women Who Care Monadnock pays participating restaurants to make meals and package them, including Aesop’s Tables, Brady’s American Grill, Cooper’s Hill Public House, Grappelli’s Pizza, and Nonie’s Restaurant and Bakery, all of which are located in Peterborough.
Distribution of the meals is on a first-come, first-serve basis, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5 to 6 p.m., behind the South Meadow School (Peterborough). More information is available at https://bit.ly/CommunityMealsToGo or by calling 603-924-800 ext. 106.
