Get all the details on volunteering for the Produce show here.  Ages 18 and up. Perfect for groups, but individuals are welcome. 


Never Too Early to Take Action
Lacy did it. You can too.When Lacy visited the Food Bank and heard we needed funds for more fresh fruits and vegetables, she went right into action, baking bread for friends, family, and neighbors. She only asked that they give a donation to the Food Bank. She raised over $800, proving one person can make a big impact!  Hunger Action Month is coming in September, but it's never too early to take action - go to the ACFB website and learn how you can get involved. Look for info coming in August about Hunger Action Month 2011!  



A Story to Tell 
Check Out ACFB's New Blog!We launched the brand new ACFB Blog last month, and we'd love for you to check it out!  See the story we posted yesterday and hear what several Youth Summit teens had to say about their day at the State Capitol and ACFB's Product Rescue Center. Or see Tuesday's post about a food co-op in Grant Park that's been changing lives for years. We've got some great stories to tell, and we'd love for you to jump in the conversation!  Visit ACFB's new blog, and leave us a comment!       

 



Nearly 34 Million Pounds  
Distribution Increased to Nearly 30 Million Pounds!That's how much product went out the doors of the Food Bank last fiscal year.  Nearly 30 million of that went directly into the doors of our partner agencies - the food pantries, kitchens, shelters, and other nonprofit programs that serve people in need. The good news: we were able to provide our agencies with 34% more product than the prior year. The bad news - the need keeps growing. See what ACFB partner agencies are saying about the increased need in this video we posted last month.    



A Taste of Mystery 
Agatha's Mystery Dinner TheatreThe remote town of Spoon, Washington just hasn't been the same since sullen teenager, Bella, lost her heart (and nearly her neck) to the mysterious (yet sparkly) vampire, Edward...  Hungry for more? Hungry to help? ACFB will receive proceeds from a special performance of Next Bite at Twilight: The Saga Continues at Agatha's Mystery Dinner Theater on Sunday, September 18Tickets are already available for purchase online. Why not plan now for an evening of comedy and mystery that will benefit the Food Bank?
