Dear Z Community,

It’s that time of the year when several ZAGBA families get together (no age limit) with hundreds of other volunteers from the local communities to participate in our annual tradition of packaging meals to help end hunger in our local communities.  The Thanksgiving Interfaith Meal-Packing event is sponsored by the Harvard Chaplains and the Humanist Community at Harvard (HCH).

Please read their message below and spread the word to those who might be interested in coming to Harvard this year.

Imp Note for All:  ZAGBA has reserved three tables that can take 36 volunteers only.  So please note, thatonly the first 36 number of people signing up (not first 36 families) will be the ZAGBA group volunteers.  For those of you, who could not make it with the group of the first 36 people, can still participate at a different time.  Same goes for any of you who cannot make it within the time slot given in this Evite, but still want to participate at a different time, can do so via the general sign up link below:

Below is a message from the HCH on the Thanksgiving Interfaith Meal-Packing Event

Through collaboration with EndHungerNE, HCH is raising $2,500 to package 10,000 meals for local Boston area food banks.  This event is open to any individual or community who is interested in participating in this day of interfaith service.

Join us and other religious and nonreligious communities and individuals from across the greater Boston area in a day of interfaith service designed to help end hunger in New England.
