Our Major Special Events
Campaign Against Summer Hunger
April 3 – May 15, 2018
Each year across Sarasota and DeSoto Counties, school nutrition programs provide children in need with up to ten healthy meals each week. But when schools close for the summer, how do these children find the help they need?
With the compassionate help of donors, volunteers and more than 150 community partners, the food bank is determined to reach more children, with more nutritious food, than ever before. Summer hunger is a problem that we can solve together. That’s why this year, the Campaign Against Summer Hunger returns for the fifth year running from April 3rd until May 15th.
Hunger Action Month
The entire month of September is devoted to raising awareness about hunger. Hunger Action Month features a multitude of special events and activities, including participation at local schools.

One of the community’s largest and most popular family friendly events, and draws more than 1,500 guests. 40 of our community’s finest restaurants and caterers serve delicious soups, breads, desserts, and more.
