Events

There are many ways to get involved at the Food Bank! Throughout the year we have special events which are great times to learn more about the Food Bank, while having a wonderful time for a wonderful cause!

Empty Bowls

The Empty Bowls project involves the entire community coming together to bring awareness to the issue of hunger. Each year students from area schools make ceramic bowls for our Student Bowl Sale. The Food Bank also participates in both Spring and Fall into the Arts with the help of professional artist who donate their art work.

Spring Food Raiser

Spring Food Raiser encompasses three months of activities to raise food and funds to benefit the Food Bank. Just a few of the activities that have become synonymous with this yearly slate of activities include the Super Market Sweep, NALC Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, Souper Kids Food Drive, Red Nose Day and much, much more!

Hunger Action Month!

September in national Hunger Action Month (HAM), a time for Food Banks across the country to come together and bring awareness to the work we do each and every day – feeding the hungry and working to make a difference in people’s lives. The color associated with HAM is orange, so don’t be surprised if you come to the Food Bank and start the see everything in orange! During this month, the Food Bank has special HAM related activities, volunteer opportunities and events. You can also get involved by participating in the 30 Ways in 30 Days calendar challenge and the SNAP Challenge, where people learn what it’s like to live on the budget of an individual who has to rely only on food stamp benefits.
