For the second year, a Bedford family has undertaken a collection to benefit the Bedford Campus Food Pantry at Middlesex Community College. A donation bin in the lobby of the Bedford Police Station will be in place through March 22, available to accept donations 24 hours each day.
In 2018 Bedford residents generously donated 800 pounds of food and supplies for MCC students through the Campus Food Pantry.
“As Bedford and Lexington residents,” said the family, “we can support MCC’s ongoing effort to address the problem. Please consider donating food or supplies from the following priority lists. ”
- Food items: Rice (brown/white), beans (canned/dry), jelly, oatmeal, canned corn, crackers, pasta sauce, canned soup, juice boxes, fruit cups, granola bars, breakfast bars, individually wrapped raisins
- Personal care items: Toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning wipes, laundry detergent, soap/body wash, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, shaving cream, razors and baby items (diapers, wipes, baby food, baby bottles)
Jonathan Crockett, the college’s Coordinator of Wellness Programming, Hunger and Homelessness Liaison, said, ” On behalf of the MCC Food Pantries, thank you so much for your support and participation. … It takes a village!”
