HungerFight supported our first food packing event at Memorial Presbyterian Church in St. Augustine in 2017. The event was a total success, involved all age groups in our church, and promoted a lasting sense of our outreach mission to our community. We will schedule another, larger one in 2018 and will ask HungerFight to support this one, too, because of the wonderful, personal, teamwork between our congregation and HungerFight. They truly live out Jesus' commandment to care for the poor and the hungry.

The Hunger Fight meal packing event was very well organized and appeared to be very successful! I think more advertising for their organization would help as I was not aware of them or what they do.

My family worked today to fill plastic storage bags with food to go in backpacks at title 1 schools. Too many children face an empty pantry at home. We were happy to help. And thank you to ChicFilA for sponsoring

What a fun way to volunteer your time for such an amazing cause...helping kids with meals when not at school. Peppy music, hard working people, shining their light to make others' lives better!

The people at Hunger Fight show great enthusiasm and compassion for the work they do for families in the community. The only drawback is the parking at their office which isn't enough for when they host big events.
