Feeding hungry families is a great cause, so we love to celebrate as we do it! Below you’ll find information about Food Connection events throughout the year. There’s something for everyone!
Beers and Bags – August 18th
Save the date for our first Beer and Bags Day on Friday, August 18th from 5:00pm to 6:30pm! While enjoying a delicious beverage, we’ll be bagging the dried goods that are a crucial part of the food that hungry families need when they come to the Food Connection. You and your friends just need to come by – we’ll provide the drinks and the materials! Guests must be 21 or older.

Come down to the Bix Social Hall on Friday, September 15th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm for a quick bite. We’ll be sampling the meals and recipes that we and our partners have made to turn good food from the St. Leo Food Bank into great meals!

Wheels to Meals 2017
This year, 108 riders came together to fight hunger for our neighbors and friends in Pierce County. Collectively, you and your friends rode more than 5,000 miles – that’s about the distance from WSU to the Lima, Peru!
While biking, you and your friends and family also raised about $19,500 to feed hungry families – $4,500 more than our goal! The money raised during this event will provide 85,500 meals for families in our community. None of this would have been possible without your dedication and support. Thank you for riding and sponsoring!
