BSMG Packages 32,000 Meals for Local RI Charity

Posted by BSMG on 10 Aug 2016

At this year’s 15th Annual Charity Invitational held at the Rhode Island Country Club, we raised $8,000 for The Outreach Program. These generous donations equated to 32,000 meals, which were packaged and donated to Amos House in Providence, RI. Amos House is a nonprofit social services agency that provides hospitality and direct services to the homeless and poor of Rhode Island.

A group of over 80 volunteers, including our staff, family members, customers, carrier partners and community members spent the afternoon packaging nutritious meals. Amos House lent their new cafeteria for the event and it was quickly transformed into a sea of assembly lines. Each line packaged all of the dry ingredients for the meals, as well as sealed and boxed them. The meals BSMG provided to Amos House consisted of pasta and tomato basil sauce, rice and beans and macaroni and cheese.

The Outreach Program is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that organizes food packaging events around the country. With more than 300 million meals packaged to date, the organization’s mission is to provide food, safe water, education, and medical care to those in need at home and abroad.

They strive to feed the 795 million undernourished people in the world. In the the United States alone, 1 in 6 children do not know where their next meal will come from. Through their services, The Outreach Program hopes to drop that number significantly. We are proud to help spread this important message, as well as actively participate in creating a solution.

Amos House plans to take what they need of the 32,000 packaged meals and then donate the rest to other local food pantries and charities. We were blown away by the support and generosity of all those who participated.
