Hunger Bowl 2016 Underway!
Hunger Bowl 2016 is a friendly community wide competition to see who can collect the most food based upon a per person average and to help the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia reach our goal of collecting 325,000 pounds of food in the 2 weeks leading up to Thanksgiving. More than 41,000 meals go out our doors and onto the tables of northeast Georgians everyday. One quarter of these in need are children. Our high unemployment rates and persistent poverty coupled with high food and fuel prices continue to drive record high demand for food assistance. The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia provided more than 11.6 million pounds (over 9.5 million meals) last year to northeast Georgia residents. Although the Food Bank sees a need for emergency food assistance everyday, traditionally the demand for such food increases at Thanksgiving. The Food Bank needs the help of the entire community to ensure that we are able to meet this demand. Donate now by clicking the donation button on our home page!
