Meals for Harry Restaurant ProgramThe Meals for Harry Program was a smashing success last year raising just under $10,000 for the Hunger Walk with area restaurants throughout Southwest Florida donating a portion of their proceeds for a day to the Hunger Walk.  We look forward to expanding it further in 2018 so if you have a restaurant or know of a restaurant who might like to get involved this year, please contact John Kuhn at jkuhn@harrychapinfoodbank.org

 

 

Participation is vital to the success of the Hunger Walk so please consider asking your friends and family to support your Hunger Walk efforts to help us continue the fight to end hunger in Southwest Florida.  If you have not yet registered for the Hunger Walk, make it your New Year’s resolution to do so.  If you have registered, thank you.   We look forward to seeing you on January 19, 2019.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook at Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida.
