BostonCANshare Benefit Event @ District
December 28th, 2011
District Lounge (180 Lincoln Street Boston, Ma)
BostonCAN Share 2011
City departments, corporate and community partners, the Boston Public Schools and other city agencies make a direct contribution to hunger relief in our city. Each participating company or organization has a coordinator who promotes the food drive. Boston CAN Share provides promotional materials - posters and brochures - along with boxes that are used to collect donations. Throughout the food drive, FedEx picks up the donations from each location for delivery to The Greater Boston Food Bank. The food is distributed to over 90 food pantries in Boston as well as area shelters and soup kitchens.
Our goal is to make Boston the healthiest city in the US. We recognize that for every Boston resident to live a healthy lifestyle, we must start by eradicating hunger and increasing access to healthy food.
25 Years Strong
This is the CAN Share campaign's 25th year. It's also the 25th year anniversary of the Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) which was originated in Massachusetts in 1986 and launched by Thomas M. Menino before he was Mayor. FMNP was adopted nationally by Congress in 1992.
235 Entertainment will be raffling off a pair of OPENING DAY BOSTON CELTICS TICKETS donated by our good friends @ Higs Tickets. To be entered into this raffle you must purchase the $10.00 entry ticket and winner will be picked night of the event. Canned foods can also be donated night of the event.
