Hunger Ball 2017
Thank you to all of our supporters for making this an incredible event! Over 100 people were dancing and fighting hunger with us on October 7th and we raised enough funds to provide 10,000 meals for families who come to the food bank.
Beers and Bags
Our group enjoyed a delicious beverage while bagging the dried goods that are a crucial part of the food that hungry families need when they come to the Food Connection. It was a great time and we look forward to holding another one soon!
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!
