Father Bill's this Saturday
"One for me, one for Father Bill's"

The Hingham Farmers Market is pleased that Father Bill's & MainSpring will be at the CS&E tent this Saturday, June 18, to answer questions and offer information about its mission to end hunger and homelessness. Since 2013, the Friends of the Hingham Farmers Market have collected perishable products contributed by vendors at the close of each market session - the "gleaning project" - and delivered them to Father Bill's head-quarters in Quincy.
     This week, HFM market-goers will have the opportunity to buy "one for me, one for Father Bill's." There will be baskets available for market-goers to contribute purchases made at the HFM for this important community's use.
     "We have always received great support from the Hingham and South Shore communities in helping Father Bill's & MainSpring to end homelessness," says
John Yazwinski, CEO of the organization. "We are grateful for the role that the Friends play in ending homelessness, and hunger, on the South Shore and are excited to build on that partnership this weekend."
