Food Rescue Summer Party

Celebrate food rescue with beer, ice cream, and music

Thursday, May 31st, 6-10pm

Spenard Church of Love

Volunteers, advocates, and community members--come celebrate Food Reclamation with music from the Tanana Rafters and locally-brewed beer at the Church of Love in Spenard! 

Each year Food Bank of Alaska reclaims millions of pounds of food (mostly fresh produce) thanks to over 19,000 volunteers hours. Our volunteers do awesome work at all levels of Food Bank of Alaska: they enter donations and do administrative work, sort through reclaimed food so that high quality produce goes out to Mobile Food Pantries, and run those same Mobile Food Pantries all across Anchorage, six days a week. They advocate for policies that address social causes related to hunger, move pallets around the warehouse, and serve on our board.

Food reclamation is at the heart of what we do. For the first 10 years, Food Bank of Alaska's slogan was "Cache and share. Don't waste food." We're still enthusiastic about preventing delicious produce from going into landfills and making sure that agencies can use it to serve their clients.

Tickets $10
