Helping Hands Award
The Helping Hands Award is an award that recognizes organizations and individuals who have given their strong support to the New England Food Foundation. The award is a symbol of the commitment and dedication to the children of New England. Up to three awards per year can be given to recipients.
An engraved bluestone terrace has been created from recipients of the Helping Hands Award and is located at the Cape House. This allows the visitors to the Cape House an opportunity to see all of the individuals and organizations who have made their stay possible.
