Bay State Milling Company was proud to once again partner with Food For Friends to pack bags full of full to provide a complete Thanksgiving meal to families and organizations who need it most in our area. Bay State Milling Company has been partnering with Food For Friends for over 10 years, with the number of local employee participants growing each year. For the 2022 event, employees at the Bolingbrook location of Bay State Milling (279 Beaudin Blvd) packed roughly 100 bags full of a whole frozen turkey, corn, green beans, instant mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, and corn muffin mix. Employees then took as many of the packed bags as they wanted in order to provide them to a family or organization in need that they are either connected with or are aware of.
Bay State provided 25 Thanksgiving BlueBags to the families from the Fellowship Housing Program, in Hoffman Estate, IL. Fellowship Housing is a transitional program for single moms. This gift continues to help them save for the future.
Bay State Milling Company was founded in 1899 on a strong core purpose and set of values that are still adhered to today. One of the many ways BSM likes to operate within that framework is to "protect, support and invest in the communities and environments in which we operate". By partnering with Food For Friends each November, we are able to serve our local communities and be a blessing to those in need.
