The public is encouraged visit any of the participating restaurants and partake in the special deal they’re offering to raise meals for The Foodbank. Participating restaurants include Corner Kitchen, Meadowlark Restaurant, and Wheat Penny. More restaurants are being added before the start of the Food Fight.
The restaurant raising the most money will win bragging rights and a trophy.
Michelle L. Riley, CEO of The Foodbank, says, “We thank everyone participating in the Food Fight. It takes an entire community to work together to fight hunger in Dayton and with money raised through this event, we will be able to further support and serve our neighbors in need.”
September is Hunger Action Month, which is the Feeding America network’s nationwide awareness campaign designed to mobilize the public to take action on the issue of hunger. The feeling of running on empty is a reality for over 127,000 people in the Miami Valley. We need to make sure that no child, adult or senior in America ever runs on empty, so this September, we’re asking everyone to come together to help end hunger. FOOD FIGHT is a great way to become involved in the fight against hunger.
