Bountiful Bowls and the Arbella Insurance Foundation – a match to fill bowls of those in need!
This year, Rachel’s Table is is holding its Bountiful Bowls biennial fundraiser event virtually on May 20th to continue the fight against food insecurity. Filling the bowls of those in need is what we do all year, and this event, held virtually, will focus on how and why we do what we do. With your help, and with a grant from the Arbella Insurance Foundation, all March donations for Bountiful Bowls will be matched — dollar for dollar — up to $10,000.
“Bountiful Bowls fundraising event allows Rachel’s Table to continue to fund programs in the Pioneer Valley that support food security,” says Jodi Falk, Rachel’s Table director. “The COVID-19 pandemic has created a significant surge in the number of families struggling with food insecurity, which is why we are so grateful to have the Arbella Insurance Foundation matching every donation Rachel’s Table receives for Bountiful Bowls this month. Normally, $1 can provide four meals but with the support of the Arbella Insurance Foundation, that dollar can now provide up to eight meals.”
This year’s Bountiful Bowls theme is inspiring others to step up and will honor anti-hunger activists Suze Goldman and Bob Bolduc, founder and CEO of Pride Stores. As anti-hunger activists, both Ms. Goldman and Mr. Bolduc have tirelessly worked in the Pioneer Valley community to provide access to healthy food and inspired others to step up to join Rachel’s Table as it works to serve the food insecure. Rachel’s Table is also thankful to PeoplesBank and the Irene E. and George A. Davis Foundation for their generous contributions to Rachel’s Table’s Bountiful Bowls.
During the pandemic, Rachel’s Table’s operations across the Pioneer Valley delivered more than 525,000 pounds of food to those in need. Furthermore, Rachel’s Table provided healthy meat, produce, dairy and more to over 53 agencies, some of whom do not receive food donations from any other program. Bountiful Bowls will help Rachel’s Table continue to provide ongoing support in the region. To make a Bountiful Bowls donation, please visit www.rachelstablepv.org/bb2021. Making your donation on or before March 31st will double the impact of your gift through this generous match grant from Arbella Insurance Foundation!
