Vineyard Committee on Hunger (VCOH) holds its 37th annual Bread Sale in front of the Bunch of Grapes this Saturday, June 14, from 10 am to 2 pm.

VCOH was founded on the Island in the 70s to raise community awareness about world hunger. Each summer the committee gathers on Main Street, Vineyard Haven, to sell pastries, cookies, breads, and muffins (including gluten-free options), the proceeds of which will remain on the Island to benefit families in need. Funds will go to organizations such as the Island Food Pantry, Serving Hands Food Distribution, Family-to-Family Holiday Meals, and Meals on Wheels. VCOH will accept baked donations from 9 am on, and monetary donations from 10 am.
