4th Annual Hunger Banquet

April 22 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

When you register for the 4th Annual Hunger Banquet, you aren’t signing up to attend “just another fundraiser.” The Hunger Banquet is designed to immerse guests in the reality of food insecurity in our community. Based on the income levels in Johnson County, some guests will receive a chicken dinner, a lucky few will receive a steak and lobster dinner, and far more will receive no meal at all.

Feeding America estimates that more than 19,000 Johnson County residents experience food insecurity. Last year, CommUnity Food Bank distributed a record-breaking 2,000,000 pounds of food to 4,583 households.

The annual Hunger Banquet is the largest fundraiser for the Food Bank, providing enough funding to support the food bank for nearly 6 months.
