University District Food Bank Fundraiser

News from the University District Food Bank:

I’m excited to announce Food Truck Roundup!, an event celebrating the 30 year anniversary of the University District Food Bank and official kickoff of our Capital Campaign, Fight Hunger build hope, to construct a new facility.
In 1983 the food bank provided food to 50 families a month. Today on average we distribute groceries to 1100 different families a week in the same 800 square foot facility. It’s time for a change! Fight Hunger build hope is a three year $2.75 million project to greatly expand our distribution and storage capacity and enhance our ability to provide nutritious meals to families in need.
We've already raised $1.75 million! The Food Truck Roundup! is a great opportunity for you to find out more about our capital campaign and have a great time. Event details below:
