Hilltown Families Field Trip
The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts
Saturday, September 15th at 1:30pm
At the beginning of the summer we wrote about the benefits of families, schools and organizations taking an organized field trip The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts in our post, Visit The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts: A Community-Based Educational Field Trip for Kids. We mentioned that Hilltown Families would be organizing a field trip in September during Hunger Awareness Month and that groups and individuals are invited to join us.
We’ve set a date for our field trip: Saturday, September 15th at 1:30pm in Hatfield, MA!
Our field trip will involve a tour of the Food Bank in Hatfield, where 7.6 million pounds of food gets sorted every year! Participating families/groups can see how the facility operates with pallets of food, the walk in freezer, forklifts and staff management. Games as a group will be facilitated to aid in the understand of the concept of hunger, and there will be a hands-on volunteer project. This is a free event, open to all!
If your family or youth group is interested in joining us, please sign up now. We will need to know how many folks are joining us and the age range of the youth participants. Submit the information below and we will follow up with a confirmation and more details.
