On Friday, October 25th Allegiance Fundraising Group’s Plymouth team got together and volunteered at the South Shore Community Action Council Food Distribution Center (SSCAC).

SSCAC’s Food Distribution Center aims to get more nutritious food to those in need.

The Food Distribution Center not only serves as the hub for safely collecting and storing food aid, but also as the nexus point for distributing this food aid throughout Plymouth County.

Similar to a warehouse-style membership club, SSCAC’s Food Distribution Center has 45 members, all of which are food pantries, soup kitchens, Councils on Aging, elementary schools, and other non-profit emergency food assistance providers. Twice per week, their members come to the Center to pick up food aid —  including non-perishable canned and dry goods, frozen foods, fresh produce, dairy, proteins, juice, and other perishable foods. The Center members then bring this food back to their home communities for distribution to hungry and food insecure people, ultimately serving a 29-town area. 

It was our honor to revisit the SSCAC Food Distribution Center — where we had volunteered in the past — and lend a hand.  In addition to a half-day of work on the distribution center floor, we also donated 67 pounds of food.
