Food Bank of Alaska hosts Hunger Action Month events in Anchorage
One in seven Alaskans aren’t sure where their next meal is coming from, according to the Food Bank of Alaska (FBA). As part of Hunger Action Month in September, the nonprofit has organized a city-wide fundraising event with local restaurants to help feed hungry Alaskans.
Dine Out Against Hunger is an all-day event featuring breakfast, lunch and dinner on Thursday, Sept. 29. A percentage of the proceeds earned at the participating restaurants will go to the FBA.
“It’s a great way to have an enjoyable dining experience with family and friends while also supporting a great cause,” according to the FBA’s website.
Participating restaurants include:
On Friday, Sept. 30, the FBA will showcase the documentary film “Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story” at Bear Tooth Theatrepub. The event will begin at 2:30 p.m. and is part of the One Course Discourse series, according to the nonprofit.
“There will be a panel following the film to discuss efforts to reduce food waste in Alaska, with Representative Geran Tarr, the Municipality of Anchorage, and Food Bank of Alaska representatives,” according to a statement from Cara Durr, a spokeswoman for FBA.
