Brownstone's Big Event 2013

Brownstone is gearing up to really outdo ourselves with our Big Event prize, and this year, everybody wins. This year's prize is much more extravagant than a Tiffany necklace, Louis Vuitton luggage or a trip to Paris. But we need your help.

We are feeding Boston for the holidays. 

Please help us achieve our goal by donating your non-perishable food items at the Brownstone booth during the Big Event Trade Show (booth #121 and 120). 

Do good, feel good, and help make a stronger community.  

The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country. They made a commitment in 2013 to provide at least one meal a day to every person in need in eastern Massachusetts and we want to help them achieve this goal.

Below is a list of preferred food items, according to the GBFB. If you would like to donate monetarily, every $1 provides 3 meals for those in need.

Preferred Items:
Dairy: Milk - dried, evaporated, and boxed (such as Parmalat)
Protein: Beef stew, nuts, peanut butter, beans, and peas (dried or canned), chili, tuna fish, chicken, salmon (canned)
Vegetables: Tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, vegetables (canned), tomato juice
Fruit: Raisins and other dried fruit, applesauce, any canned fruit in its own juice
Grains: Crackers, oatmeal, whole grain rice, all types of pasta, ready to eat low sugar/high fiber cereal (Cheerios, Raisin Bran, etc.)

*For the safety of volunteers GBFB prefers non-glass containers. Baby food or pet food cannot be accepted.

We look forward to seeing you at this year's MAIA Big Event and hope you'll join us in making this time of year a little more joyful for those in need.
