Newton Baseball and Softball Association is proud to once again partner with Sanborn Ends 68 Hours of Hunger by running a food drive at our opening day. Last year I think we did a great job and a team was awarded a pizza party after one of their games. This year lets make it even bigger!

• Box/bag of low sugar, whole grain nutritional cereal

• Individual packets of Oatmeal

• Cans of soup, beans or vegetables,

• Peanut butter or jelly (no glass please)

• Can of tuna or chicken

• Fruit cups or Apple Sauce cups (no glass please)

• Box of crackers or tortillas

• Macaroni and cheese (boxes, no cups please)

•Box of pasta and can of tomato sauce

Sanborn Ends 68 Hours of Hunger is a private, not-for-profit, volunteer effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive in school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive in school on Monday morning.


Childhood hunger is a national problem. It occurs when children receive insufficient food on a regular basis. After a while, these children also experience “fear of hunger” that affects their behavior as much as physical hunger affects their body. We provide a bag filled with food items to those children to sustain them over the weekend. In doing so, the children’s nutritional needs can be met week to week.
