The 4th annual Tonneson + Co’s 5K run/walk benefitting the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry’s Kids First program was a great success! Approximately 200 people ranging in age from 6 to 76 registered for the race and enjoyed the beautiful weather as they ran or walked around Lake Quannapowitt. The overall fastest male, Alex Demeule, finished the race in 17:53 and the fastest female, Samantha Wilkinson, finished in 20:03. Thanks to generous sponsors and fantastic participants, approximately $6500 was raised for the Kids First Program!
Tonneson + Co, Certified Public Accountants and Consultants in Wakefield will be hosting the 3rd Annual 5k Run/Walk to benefit the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry’s Kids First program on Sunday, July 26, 2015.
The Kids First program provides food to families with school age children during the summer months. Many families receive free or reduced price breakfast and lunch during the school year, but this help is not available during the summer. The Kids First program provides the added food items to help replace those meals.
Register today to join in the fun and benefit a worthy cause, the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry’s Kids First Program. It looks like it’s going to be a beautiful day to run or walk around our town’s lovely lake. Invite family and friends and make a day of it!

This year we continued our program to provide wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to our clients!
Our Thanksgiving meal consisted of a choice of turkey or ham, cranberry sauce, canned vegetables, stuffing, potatoes, onions, fresh fruit donated by Lisatano Fruit which included apples, oranges and pineapples, frozen pies and rolls. We gave out approximately 140 meals.
Our Christmas meal consisted of pork tenderloin, canned and fresh vegetables, rolls, potatoes and frozen pies. We gave out approximately 105 Christmas meals. Our local Shaw’s Supermarket provided a lot of this food at low cost and even delivered it to us for distribution.
