Hundred Nights Tailgate Dinners


It’s hard to ignore hunger. Your stomach growls. You get a shaky feeling. Sometimes, a headache blooms. Being hungry stinks and knowing that there are hungry people in our region is so unsettling, particularly when I know I can do something about it without breaking my bank or feeling overwhelmed by some grand project.
Hundred Nights Inc, a shelter non-profit in Keene, has a well-established weekend dinner program. The program grew from a need to make sure homeless and low-income families might have a source of help when the Friendly Kitchen (a much larger food pantry and soup kitchen outfit) is closed. Friendly Kitchen provides meals on a Monday through Friday basis, but is closed on the weekends.
People are still hungry on the weekends, though. So… Hundred Nights provides the space for a meal to be served and relies on volunteers to provide the meals and servers.
We need a corps of folks to provide prepared recipes for 8 – 10 people, donate paper goods and plastic flatware, buy a bag of bread and butter, some jugs of milk or cases of bottled water etc…
