This is a tremendous accomplishment of which the entire City of Amesbury should feel proud. What began as a small group of local volunteers putting on a community meal, has evolved into a lifeline providing food to more than 1 out of 12 Amesbury residents for the last four consecutive years.
Please join us a the May 8th City Council Meeting, Amesbury City Hall, 7:00pm to celebrate this achievement. And thank YOU for all you do to create a food secure community.
Summer Lunch Program - How You Can Help
How can you help support the Summer Lunch Program?
1. Donate most needed Summer Lunch items at Chamber of Commerce Food Drive at Stop & Shop Amesbury on Saturday, May 5 from 10am - 2pm.
2. Make a Fill Em Up Bag! Kids decorate their bags and ask friends and family to help fill it. The goal is to collect $25, which will provide breakfast and lunch to a child for a whole month. This is a great opportunity for kids to understand the of community service and value of helping others!
Spoon Platoon Reception
ONT was thrilled to be able celebrate our top donors and supporters at the annual Spoon Platoon Reception on April 24. We added new engraved spoons to our living sculpture by local artists Ryan Kelley and Stephen Martin and celebrated returning donors who continue to give $1,000 and over annually.
ONT could not run without volunteers, both in our programs and in the office! This month's volunteer spotlight highlights Rose Sheehan, one of our valued office volunteers who helps keep things running smoothly at the reception desk. Rose is taking a gap year after graduating from Pinegree Academy last spring. Thank you to all our outstanding office volunteers for all that they do! Interested in volunteering in the office? Contact Alice or fill out a volunteer application today!
