Saturday, Nov. 14 – Gillette Stadium in Foxborough – Schedule Pick Up
For the past eight months, the Patriots and Revolution have teamed with the MMSF to provide "vital food packages" to veterans, military families and veteran service organizations. These packages contain non-perishable foods and nutritionist-developed recipes to provide three meals a day for two people for 14 days.
Since the program's inception, more than 5 million meals have been assembled and distributed to veterans in need. The food packages have been available for pick up at more than 25 different locations across Massachusetts, including Gillette Stadium in Foxborough. Meals are also being delivered to veterans, military families and veteran service organizations, helping to meet the needs in other New England states.
Campbell's Chunky has a long history of teaming up with NFL teams for community-focused events, having donated nearly half a million bowls of soup to hunger relief organizations across the country.
Volunteers will be on-site to assist with the distribution. All aspects of this operation will be compliant with the Center for Disease Control's policies and will emphasize social distancing. To learn more about the program, visit www.massmilitarysupportfoundation.org.
