The Harvest for Hunger Week of Giving is a joint effort among all four food banks and provides an opportunity for community members to get involved in local hunger-relief efforts, while providing fun and tangible ways to be part of the Campaign. Each food bank will host a variety of coordinated activities on each day during the week of April 1 - 7, 2019.
