The Hunger Banquet is designed to immerse guests in the reality of food insecurity in Johnson County. An estimated 22,500 of our neighbors are currently experiencing food insecurity. They know what it’s like to be hungry, really hungry.
They know what it’s like to scrape together a meal to feed their children, then go to bed with an empty stomach themselves.
They know how far they can stretch their paycheck, or what bills can be paid late.
Thanks to the generosity of people like you, they know they can turn to CommUnity for help.
CommUnity Food Bank is here for all Johnson County residents. Last year, CommUnity distributed a record-breaking 2,208,774 pounds of food to 4,797 households.
All proceeds from this event are critical to the success of the Food Bank. The annual Hunger Banquet is the largest fundraiser for CommUnity, providing enough funding to stock the shelves of the food bank for nearly 6 months.
Thank you for your ongoing support of CommUnity’s mission! Every dollar donated to the 5th Annual Hunger Banquet will enable the Food Bank to purchase 5 pounds of food. Each year, this event raises enough funding to stock the shelves for nearly 6 months.
Thank you to our sponsors!
Your support of the 5th Annual Hunger Banquet helps keep expenses down and ensures that every dollar raised goes to fighting food insecurity in Johnson County.
