Help to feed 5,000 on Saturday

BURRILLVILLE - Berean Baptist Church, 474 Chapel St., in partnership with End Hunger New England, will host the Feed 5,000 Project on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 1 to 2 p.m.

The project's goal is to assemble 50 volunteers to package 5,000 meals in 50 minutes. Volunteers will work on a food packing assembly line to package the meals that have been purchased by Berean Baptist. One packaged meal feeds a family of six. Meals will be donated to local food pantries.

This is a family event. Children are welcome to participate as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
