Here's a short excerpt:
GARDNER -- The North Central region's legislative delegation donated $300 to Mount Wachusett Community College's on-campus food pantry Tuesday ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.
"We were talking about the issue of hunger and it was Rep. (Natalie) Higgins out of Leominster who suggested this was something we could do together," said state Rep. Jon Zlotnik. "This entire delegation is tied to the Mount either here or at the Devens campus so it seemed like a natural fit."
The Food for Thought Campus Pantry serves MWCC students. The pantry will be giving out 80 holiday meals this Thanksgiving in a partnership with MWCC's Student Government Association. These 80 meals are made up of 1,200 donated items amounting to 955 pounds of food.
