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.

I have had the pleasure of attending numerous events with Hunger Fight over the past few years and each and every time their events are well organized, FUN, and impactful. Now they have a literacy program to enhance their feeding program. WOW!

Hunger Fight runs a very well oiled organization. What I particularly like about Hunger Fight is that all of the meals that are packed go to the northeast Florida area, where my club is located. We love the events, and will do them again.

My granddaughter and i joined my fellow Ecolab associates and their spouses and children .
We put together brown sugar and oatmeal meals not sure exactly how many but we had a Blast and help Others in need .
The event was very well run even with the good problem they had of more volunteers then they expected ..
It was a great life experience for my 6 yr old grand daughter . She had fun and helped with all task on our table . She had plenty of questions after we were done .
We will be there again next year !!!!
