Saturday Morning Fun Club

The Westfield Fun Club has suspended our in person activities and classes during this national health crisis, and has turned our attention to helping with our families’ immediate needs, including pressing food insecurity.  Many of our families live from week to week on a combination of hourly wages and SNAP,  With most jobs now temporarily on hold, they have been struggling with having enough money for food and other essential items. The Westfield Fun Club is now running deliveries to our families twice weekly to help supplement their food supply, and we could use your help.

What do we need?

We need both non-perishable and perishable (but longer shelf life) items and essential household supplies, including:

  • Soups
  • Canned vegetables
  • Stocks
  • Rice
  • Lentils
  • Chickpeas
  • Pastas
