Food Bank's Hunger Bowl Competition Winding Down
The upcoming holidays are a time for family and celebration for many, but for a significant number of residents, this is also a time spent battling food insecurity and hunger. Area agencies and organizations like the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia are working to make this a time of heightened awareness about their plight. Erin Barger is President and CEO of the Food Bank. She says as many as 15% of Clarke County residents struggle with food insecurity.
One of the organization’s most successful food and fund raisers is the Hunger Bowl competition which is currently underway.
The Hunger Bowl competition ends at 3 pm, Wednesday, November 16. Teams can collect food donations, raise money through a virtual food drive, or a combination of both. Visit foodbanknega.org for more information.
