We are excited to add this forum to our public conversation for one simple reason: we want to more urgently share the Food Bank’s good news with our friends working to help our hungry neighbors in need. And we do mean “share”, so please respond with your insights, suggestions and, of course, your “mission moments”.
With September 1 launching Hunger Action Month there is no better time to start the discussion on hunger in our communities. The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank has many activities planned to raise awareness during Hunger Action Month and there are many ways you can get involved. Visit us at Harrisburg’s Kipona Festival Labor Day weekend on Front Street for information and giveaways; lace up your running or walking shoes and take part in the Papa John’s Papa Pace 5K in Camp Hill on Sept. 5 with proceeds benefitting the Food Bank; come to Metro Bank Park on Monday, Sept. 28 for the 3rd Annual Capitol All-Stars softball game, with legislators from around the state taking the field to raise money for hunger-fighting organizations across the Commonwealth; and visit hungerbites.org for activities and ideas for other ways to help.
We look forward to sharing our thoughts, goals and accomplishments weekly, so please check back in to stay up-to-date on what’s new and exciting at the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank!
