Special Note about Giving Hunger The Blues
Although this event is a lot of fun and we are thrilled when the community comes together to support the food bank, this year we will not be co-hosting. With the increasing demand for services and our limited resources, we’ve decided to redirect our efforts to other activities that are less time and labor intensive.

Thank you for your support!
