Food Basket Challenge


Leominster Spanish American Center’s Food Basket Challenge invites local participation!

Update – May, 20,  2015We have received word today that the Nashua Valley Council of the Boy Scouts of America has selected the Community Food Pantry of The Leominster Spanish American Center as one of their designated sites for food drop off for their “Scouting For Food” program which is held in early November, 2015!

According to Mr. Matthew Ghirarda, Senior District Executive of the Wachusett District, Boy Scouts of America in Lancaster, “the NVC has 32 communities with roughly 100 scout units.” They “will be asking all of them to bring food to the council office. Which we will bring directly to the Spanish American Food Pantry.”

“It is our plan to educate the Scout Units about your need to keep the pantry stocked.”

The Spanish American Center is very grateful for having been chosen to be the recipient of this wonderful generosity of the Boy Scouts. This assistance will go a long way to help us help our clients.

Muchas Gracias! Thank You!

September, 2014

At the September 4, 2014 Spanish American Center Board of Director’s Meeting a donation of food items was made by Board Members for the Spanish Center’s Food Pantry. This was an effort to increase supplies which were depleted as a result of a difficult summer trying to meet the food security needs of our clients. The result – wonderful donations and – a crisis averted for the moment.

As a result of this successful effort, the Board has invited (“challenged”) THREE other Leominster area Boards of Directors to join us in the “Food Basket Challenge”. They, in turn, then may challenge three other Leominster Boards, etc. until the challenge has been met – with a fully stocked pantry!

Once a Challenged Board has gathered their food items, they are urged to take pictures and forward them to our contact page for inclusion here, in order to fully join us in the spirit of a healthy community and a job well done!
