WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Westfield Food Pantry held their first ever, and what they are hoping is their first “annual” fundraiser on the campus of Westfield State University.
It was a spicy banquet called “Tango and Tapas.” Money raised Friday night goes to support their mission to feed people in need.
Gary Wolfe, the Treasurer of the Westfield Food Pantry, told 22News, “A lot of people don’t think of food pantries right now. They will starting in October and November, with the holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas. But any time of the year there is always a need.”
Wolfe said the food pantry serves 1,100 people every month in Greater Westfield, and all of the money they raised Friday supports that purpose.
