2019 Annual Harvard Interfaith Thanksgiving Meal-packaging Service Project  

It’s that time of the year, where ZAGBA join forces with the Harvard Chaplains and work side by side with religious and non-religious communities to pack thousands of meal boxes for the Interfaith Thanksgiving Meal-packaging Service Project! This is a community service event for all family members, so to families with younger children, this is a great way to show your kids how to give back to your community.  

This year, we will be packing 35,000 nutritious meals total for local organizations who help the 10% of Massachusetts households who struggle to provide food for their families. The total fundraising amount needed is $8,750 (25 cents per meal) to make this event a success. We need your help hitting this goal! Thank you for your generosity — we look forward to seeing you there! Note: You don’t have to donate to participate! Your time is valuable. And if you can’t make it, consider donating and spreading the word.
