Hunger Study Stuff the Trucks
Saturday, May 18, 2013, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
The food bank will be holding two simultaneous Stuff the Truck events to collect $5 food bags for the Hunger in America Study. The study aims to create a snapshot of hunger in the U.S. that can be used to develop programs and inform advocacy work and public policy discourse. The $5 food bags, which can be purchased at the select Belle Foods locations during the event, contain most needed, nonperishable items and will be distributed to clients in exchange for completion of the survey. To donate, visit one of the two locations below on Saturday, May 18 between the hours of 9 am and 1 pm and tell a cashier you'd like to purchase a food bag.
