The food collected will help provide weekend packages of food for children in local schools that are coming to school hungry on Monday mornings. 

A food bin will be placed in the lobby of City Hall on Friday, July 28th through Friday, August 11th, 2017. Anyone wishing to donate can drop off donations in the bin located in the lobby of the Palm Bay City Hall Annex at 120, Malabar Rd.

Mayor William Capote has named The Children’s Hunger Project (TCHP), as this year’s beneficiary for the annual event and hopes to raise $100,000 to benefit the local organization that is committed to ensuring that no child in need goes without food.
