NEW: Food Bank Partnership Conference Plans How to End Hunger

Thursday, June 07, 2012


Lt. Governor Tim Murray lauded the valuable service the Worcester County Food Bank provides as he called for a public partnership with hunger relief agencies.  

"We need to continue to focus on how public resources and policy can be maximized and leveraged to help families achieve economic security," said Murray. "By working with our community partners, like the Worcester County Food Bank, we are enhancing the resources to assist those in need and help fight the cycle of hunger and poverty."

Murray was one of the speakers at the Food Bank’s 11th Annual Partner Agency conference with the theme of Feeding America – Feeding Our Neighbors.

The goal of the annual event is to engage attendees in strategic thinking to feed people today while working toward hunger-free communities in the future.

Vicki Escarra, President of Feeding America was the keynote speaker.

As the largest hunger relief org in county, the Worcester County Food Bank provides hunger relief services to 150 agencies through food pantries, shelters and community meal programs. Nearly 6 million pounds of food were delivered to more than 83,000 individuals during fiscal 2011.
