United Way of Greater New Bedford’s Hunger Heroes Project: Families Helping Families is a Thanksgiving packaging event the whole family can get involved with. Volunteers gather to sort and package 1,000 Thanksgiving meals for families in need in our community.

    With many businesses working remotely due to COVID-19, we are unable to host as many food drives as we have in the past to collect the items needed for Hunger Heroes. Please consider making a donation to help cover the cost of the additional food needed for the meals.
