New England Research Chefs Association Region Event
5th Annual Community Service Day at the Greater Boston Food Bank
Saturday, November 6, 2021, 1:00 - 4:00pm
Limited to 15 volunteers (including Ambassadors) - You will confirm your registration with the Food Bank when you receive your registration email from RCA. See note below.
RCA’s Month of Giving allows members to build connections with fellow members and demonstrate RCA’s commitment to local communities. Giving back to the community comes naturally to those of us who are members of the RCA. Leading the charge as ambassadors from the NE RCA will be Chef Joseph Ascoli*, from Reiser Equipment Corp., and Cara Dennis from Ken’s Foods**. Mark your calendars for November 6th at 1pm for our 5th annual community service day. Let’s get together to make a difference!
Happy culinologists reflecting upon their hard work. It takes a Team!
What to expect: Volunteers work in the GBFB warehouse, inspecting, sorting, and repacking donated food and grocery products.
Here's a quick overview of services provided by the Greater Boston Food Bank: “Our nutrition team oversees the nutritional value of all the food we distribute. Their hard work ensures that 83% of the food we distribute meets the highest nutrition standards as defined by the Choosing Healthy Options (CHOP) ranking system. And, 28% of the food we distribute is fresh produce, much sourced from the 30 local farms we work with.”
92¢ of every dollar donated to GBFB is applied directly to its hunger-relief efforts. The goal for our NERCA community service day is to raise as much money as possible to provide many meals to those in need.
