Home: Welcome

We are so lucky to be able to host BlessFest in the heart-filled community of Amherst, MA. During the festival this year we are also honored to be partnering with Yoga Center Amherst to give back to the local community through a food drive for the

Amherst Survival Center.


  • Unopened dried beans, brown rice, tomato/pasta sauce, and/or pasta with you to BlessFest.

  • Place in the collection bin at registration check-in

  • We'll collect everything and bring the donations to the Survival Center following the event.

The Amherst Survival Center provides a welcoming community where families and individuals can come for food, clothing, health care and for companionship and relief from isolation. People are here to share their material resources, their expertise, and frustrations. No one is turned away.

The Amherst Survival Center serves more than 6,000 people each year. Their services, all of which are free, include a Food Pantry, Community Meals, Drop-In Health Clinic, Community Store, Fresh Food Distribution, movement classes, field trips, live music performances and movie nights, job readiness workshops, job fairs, information & referral, as well as a variety of other support services.

Thank you for helping us to show gratitude to the Amherst community and build a more caring world!


Thank You

also to our partner
