 Elk Grove Food Bank Services continues to fight hunger in the south county area with our 12th Annual EGRun4Hunger, 10K & 5K Run/Walk and Kids Run on June 25, 2016.

Each year families, businesses, organizations, and runners come together to share in this Elk Grove tradition to raise awareness and critical funds for local hunger relief. Your support provides food, clothing, education and a “serving of hope” to over 4,500 individuals each month who turn to EGFBS for help. This year, with food insecurity increasing, the Food Bank expects to serve a record number of men, women and children.

The funds raised at this event will benefit the six programs of the Elk Grove Food Bank Services; 94% of all donated dollars goes directly to programs and services. 

For sponsorship opportunities and more information go to EGRun4Hunger.
