Over the past few months, Interfaith Social Services in Quincy has seen an astonishing increase in the number of new clients requesting aid from their food pantry and rental assistance programs. Interfaith’s upcoming event, the Feed the Hungry Gala at Home on Dec. 4, will help raise critical funds to meet the increased needs of the community.
Interfaith Social Services is a multiservice agency that has been serving families and individuals on the South Shore for more than 70 years. Their programs include one of the largest food pantries in greater Boston, a mental health counseling center, homelessness prevention services and a food rescue program that salvages 400,000 pounds of food from local supermarkets each year. Interfaith’s Feed the Hungry Gala raises 25 percent of the annual funding necessary to sustain these programs. Tickets for this year’s virtual event are available now at FeedtheHungryGala.org.
This year’s event has moved to a virtual format on Zoom but will retain the festive atmosphere that supporters have come to love. The beginning of the online program will feature music, a cocktail demonstration a wine pairing lesson from BinEnds and several chances to win gift cards and prizes.
Silent auction packages include a farm-to-table dinner party at Holly Hill Farm, prepared by The Townshend’s Chef Devin Adams, a dinner for six prepared by Alma Nove’s Chef Paul Wahlberg, a round of golf at Black Rock Country Club, fine wine, Red Sox memorabilia and more.
The evening ends with a Feed the Hungry Gala favorite, a game of Heads & Tails. The winner of this suspenseful game of chance will take home a $500 VISA gift card.
Tickets and more information about the event can be found at FeedtheHungryGala.org or by contacting Interfaith’s Director of Development Paula Daniels at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those not able to attend, but still wanting to support, are invited to make monetary donations at FeedtheHungryGala.org. All proceeds go directly to Interfaith’s emergency food, mental health counseling and homelessness prevention programs.
