The MutualOne Charitable Foundation became a “Food Pantry Sponsor of the Month” with its recent $2,500 award to the Natick Service Council.
The Service Council’s Bounce for Better Health program provides local individuals and families on a restricted budget with up to two weeks of fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and lean meats, according to Greg Tutuny, executive director.
The Charitable Foundation’s participation in the corporate sponsorship program will help 260 local families in the program supplement their budgets with highly nutritious foods they otherwise cannot afford, said Tutuny.
“It’s not always obvious, but there are people all around us who are facing challenges each and every day,” said Robert P. Lampry, chairman of the Charitable Foundation. “We’re willing to do what we can to help make a difference in their lives.”
