Let’s Talk Turkey…..1000 Turkey’s
Our Gobble Up Hunger turkey drive is underway and we need your help to reach our goal of collecting 1000 turkeys to distribute during the Thanksgiving season. We will be out and about within the community with our new friend Tito the Turkey throughout the season. Please check our calendar below to see when we will be in your area and how you can help us!
Your $20 donation will provide a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for a family with a turkey and all the fixings!
We have lots of fun surprises up our sleeves and will be partnering with our friends the UML River Hawks on Friday, October 17 at the Tsongas Center and 106.3 Frank FM to gather as much food, turkey’s and monetary donations to provide a Happy Thanksgiving for All!
Massachusetts Commercial Food Ban
The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) has established a solid waste disposal ban that applies to businesses and institutions disposing of one ton or more of food waste per week, effective October 1, 2014. Businesses that produce at least one ton of food waste a week must now recycle or reuse that material instead of sending it to landfills or incinerators. We Can Help!
The materials must be re-purposed or donated to food banks, sent for composting or for animal-feed or utilized in anaerobic digestion facilities. For options on complying with the Commercial Organics Waste Ban visit the Recycling Works Massachusetts
