We are so sad to share that we won't be hosting our annual fundraiser, Grillin' this summer.
Hosting a successful fundraiser for 1,000 guests is simply not feasible due to persistent supply chain issues and dramatically increased costs for food and services.
These enormous, converging challenges are even more difficult for our neighbors facing food insecurity. Today, as food and gas prices are soaring, they face the impossible choice of paying rent or feeding their families.
We still need you to fight hunger where we live! Instead of buying a ticket to Grillin’, we hope that you will consider a gift to Food Gatherers. Give now and your gift will be matched 1:1, up to $40,000, through the generosity of the Harold and Kay Peplau Family Fund.
With your generosity, Food Gatherers and our network of hunger-relief partners will persevere through these new challenges, bringing food to our neighbors facing food insecurity.
Please save the date now to join us next year on June 11th for Grillin’ 2023. We look forward to welcoming you back!
