Take Part in the 2018 Food `n Fun Challenge!

Help Stomp out Hunger in our community and participate in the Community Assistance Center’s Food `n Fun Challenge, a community-wide food drive competition to help feed local families in the summer. CAC gives food to about 500 families a month seeking assistance. Requests for food increase in the summer but donations typically decrease. Here’s how to participate in the Food `n Fun Challenge:

  • Hold your team’s food drive food any time between March 1 and April 27.
  • Teams may participate in a Sorting Service Day at CAC following their food drive.
  • Awards will be given to organizations/businesses/schools for the most food collected.

In 2017, 34 groups took the challenge and collected 40,000 pounds of food! Plus sponsors contributed $22,560 for food! The Challenge stocked the CAC Food Pantry to provide for families in need for the summer months. CAC distributes 30,000 pounds of food a month which serves 500 families or about 1,200 visits a month to the pantry.

Winners of the 2017 Food `n Fun Challenge were announced at the Food `n Fun Celebration on Saturday, May 6. View the Food `n Fun photo gallery!
