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

Empty Bowls is a hunger awareness dinner which brings the community together for the fight against hunger. This event consists of a soup dinner, generously provided by local restaurants, served in hand-made ceramic bowls. Local students and artists throughout our eight-county service area, handcraft bowls to serve soup in and to have available for purchase. In addition to dinner, each participant has an opportunity to partake in creating a bowl with a local student.

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 is national Hunger Action Month. This is a time for Food Banks across the country to come together to bring awareness to the work we do. The color associated with Hunger Action Month is orange. During this month, the Food Bank has special Hunger Action Month related activities, volunteer opportunities, and events.
