Throughout the month of May we held our annual friendly but fierce competition – that’s right – our annual Food Fight!
This once-a-year fundraising campaign splits the Lowell Area School District by M/21 / Fulton Street into the North Team and South Team. The campaign helps stock the food pantry, and raises funds to support all of the programs at FROM (we have more than a dozen!). Teams collect 1 point for each dollar or food item donated to FROM.
The team with the most points at the end is crowned the winner.
Together the teams raised more than 137,800 points this year – the most ever!
Generous matching sponsors helped provide a $31,750 match base that matched every financial gift until the match was completed.
We were blown away by the kindness of our community; the match was fulfilled before we were halfway through the fundraiser!
We celebrate the South Team for winning the 2021 Food Fight and tieing the teams for total overall wins to 6-6.
We are so thankful for each and every one of you who participated in Food Fight 2021. Because of you, we were able to touch the lives of families right here in our community.
Families like one of our food pantry participants who recently shared the impact the food pantry made in the lives of them and their family.
“When my husband lost his job we had to utilize the food pantry because we couldn’t afford food and was denied financial assistance through the federal government,” FROM participant shared. “Without the generosity of FROM my kids may have went hungry.”
