Kitchen Cabinet 'Fall into Fall' Event - Monday, November 12th

Since the year 2005, the group known as The Kitchen Cabinet has made great strides to end the fight against hunger in many Greater Boston area communities. With just 64 current members up from 53 a year ago, these business professionals extend the mission of their cause by engaging their colleagues, friends, family and even strangers to come together for events aimed at improving the status quo of Bostons surrounding neighborhoods. In association with Boston Magazines Taste, the co-chairs of The Kitchen Cabinet, Meg Staknis and Sandra Serie have organized the next happening known as Fall Into Fall which will take place on Monday, November 12th, 2012.

Supporting theGreater Boston Food Bank as their primary target,The Kitchen Cabinet organization works tirelessly to have as many volunteer opportunities as possible. Hunger in Massachusetts affects more people than one might imagine. This is precisely why this group of individuals relentlessly try to have tons of fun and uplifting gatherings that will raise the greatest amount of money possible. In 2010 for example, Fall Into Fall raised more than $24,000 which in turn was able to supply over 60,400 meals!
