Saturday night, over 320 people came together for a fun evening of food, drinks, and celebration. Taking place in our transformed warehouse, Dress Down Hunger focused on honoring our community’s efforts to stop hunger. Through a silent auction, raise the paddle and live auction, over $191,000 was raised to help Food Lifeline get more food to more people.

Another highlight of the evening was the premier of Food Lifeline’s new video created by Design Laboratories, Inc. This minute and half long video captures the mission of Food Lifeline and how you can get involved.
