Feeding the Hungry Along the Shoreline

blue dark
All our heartfelt thanks to those in our community who work so hard to help feed our neighbors in need.

The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries has received a $700 grant from the Community Foundation of Middlesex County through their “Live Local Give Local” Initiative. The funds for this grant were given by the guests of Phil Putnam, who hosted a gathering earlier this year to honor his wife, Thea Putnam, and her love of the “Live Local Give Local” fund. The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries will use this donation to purchase fresh and non-perishable food which will be distributed to needy shoreline residents.

“SSKP is so grateful to Phil Putnam, and all those who gave to this special fund through the Community Foundation of Middlesex County. With these funds we will be able to purchase enough food for over 1,795 meals. Many local families and individuals will have healthy food to eat because of their caring spirit and generosity.” said Patty Dowling, executive director of SSKP.
