Feeding Griffin Together is a casual lunch and concert in the Park at Sixth designed to raise hunger awareness and fundraise to “feed Griffin together.” Last year, roughly 100 people attended; we hope to double that this year. The first year we held FGT, we provided 15 families with Thanksgiving turkeys through the 5 Loaves 2 Fish Food Pantry. Last year, we donated $1200 to 5 Loaves 2 Fish. This year, we hope to raise $3000 to donate to Back Pack food for Kids.
Mill Towne Gourmet has agreed to donate the soup for this event, and we plan to partner with local organizations such as scouting groups, elementary schools, churches, etc to hand paint 200 bowls that attendees will use for their soup. The empty bowl they take homes is to serve as a reminder of those who continue to go hungry.
We are so very excited about the growth this event has seen in only three years! We can’t wait to see where you can help us take it in the future. Purchase your bowl as soon as possible (it takes time to HAND PAINT 200 bowls!!!) at feedinggriffintogether.eventbrite.com.
