Last year we reached 800 people in our community coming together to end hunger. This event benefits Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina's Community Food Rescue Program. The CFR program rescues safe edible food from restaurants, catering companies, produce markets and picks up and delivers the food the same day to agencies that feed on site like soup kitchens and homeless shelters. This “Go Green” program annually saves over 6 million pounds of food.

Join Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina for an evening of ENDING HUNGER!
