The program provides small bags of food to members of the North End community while also giving those who need it some social time complete with tea, cookies and conversation. Every February the church holds the Old North Church Gala and twenty-five percent of the proceeds from the event go to funding the Piccoli Regali program. Four teams com- prised of about twenty-five members of the church and other volunteers go out shopping in bulk and make up each bag to be given out. People from all walks of life, not just members of the Old North Church, come out to help make a difference in the North End community. Over the years, the Old North Church volunteers have found that as appreciative as people are to be receiving a free bag of groceries, the warm welcome they receive when they arrive at the church is also a big reason people keep returning. For both the volunteers and the recipients of their good will, sitting around with a cup of coffee or tea and just being able to pleasantly visit with each other is one of the reasons the Piccoli Regali program is going strong into its fifth year. The Piccoli Regali program is open for all North End residents and held at the parish house adjacent to the Old North Church located on the first floor at 193 Salem Street. The Piccoli Regali program will be happening every Saturday from i0:00 am to 12:30 pm from December 2012 through March 2013 and the only day it won't be held is the Saturday between Christmas and New Year's, December 29 th. For more information you can call the church at 617-423-6676 or email them at Jim Ring, who instituted Piccoli Regali and continues to be the director of the program, also welcomes your calls to discuss it at 617-429-6275.
