The Green Bean Gala
Named for our school-bus-turned-mobile-food-pantry, the Green Bean Gala is an annual fundraiser held in March to benefit a network of Essex County food pantries working to alleviate hunger locally. Funds raised:
- build the infrastructure needed to provide more fresh and healthy food, and other essential items, requested by the pantries;
- support a monthly forum for pantry managers to come together and collaborate on ideas and challenges; and
- help address the root causes of hunger in our community.
