June TEkun Initiative – Fighting Hunger
For our June TEkun initiative, we will be working with our friends at the Brighton Allston Congregational Church, who have been fighting hunger locally for over 30 years through their Food Pantry and weekly Community Suppers. You are invited to join us for any or all of the three service days.
- Tuesday June 4, 3:30 pm-5:00 pm: We will be unpacking a truck from the Boston Food Pantry and stocking the Church’s own pantry. This action (unlike the other two) requires heavy lifting and stamina. We recommend that you wear sneakers and comfortable clothes.
- Thursday June 20, 6:00 pm-8:00 pm: We will be packing baskets of groceries to prepare for the Food Pantry’s semimonthly distribution the following Saturday.
- Wednesday June 26, 5:45 pm-7:00 pm: We will be helping serve guests at the Church’s weekly Community Supper. These meals are free and open to everyone in the community.
We are excited to join hands and hearts with our friends at BACC, and hope you can join us!
