Food is Love – Buy A Photo Poster to Support the Roslindale Food Pantry
When you buy a mounted poster or print of any photograph on my web site, all profit will go directly to the Roslindale Food Pantry.
This is an emergency. Our neighbors are hungry, nine months into the pandemic food insecurity has become an epidemic of its own. Lines outside food pantries stretch for blocks. In Eastern Massachusetts, 1 in 8 people are food insecure , of which 1 in 5 are children. Before Covid that was 1 in 13. The Greater Boston Food Bank used to distribute 1 million pounds of food each week - now they are sending 2 to 2.5 million pounds out the door every seven days. Schools are closed and low-income children who used to receive free lunches and breakfasts five days a week, are going hungry. Federal programs are reduced or ending and workplace food drives are down.
And the need is great, right here in Rozzie. The Roslindale Food Bank is here to help. Established more than 40 years ago by a local pastor and congregation, today it is housed at the church, it is staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers, but volunteers are down, and the need threatens to overwhelm existing resources.
Thanks to my mother, I am a “food is love” kind of person and I believe in working in my neighborhood, at the grassroots. As I become more aware of this desperate need and pending disaster, my concern has grown. I need to do something meaningful to help feed my neighbors.
My recent photographs around Roslindale have been very popular on social media. It occurred to me that selling posters, as a special open edition of these and other images, can raise much needed funds for the Roslindale Food Bank.
From now until December 31st, you can purchase a mounted, signed, open edition 16 x 20 print, suitable for framing, for $125.00 and all profits will go directly to the Roslindale Food Pantry.
Delivery in 3 – 8 days and I will personally provide free delivery in Roslindale, Jamaica Plain, and West Roxbury. Standard shipping via USPS elsewhere.
Food is love, love your neighbors. Please purchase a poster and help feed hungry people in Roslindale.
