The Jane Shapiro Care and Share began in 1995 as a Dunning School community service project. Each month a specific food item is collected at the school to help keep A Place to Turn's shelves stocked.
A Place to Turn is an emergency food pantry that serves families across Metrowest, as well as being the primary distribution center for all calls made to the Framingham Emergency Food Hotline (established during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic).
Donations are gathered by the students. A Place to Turn comes to Dunning once a month to pick up all of the food donations from the Dunning Community.
Thank you for your contributions to A Place to Turn during the year. Our monthly food collection makes a huge difference in our community, while teaching our students the importance of giving. What a great sharing and learning project!
