The Westside Food Bank’s annual walk-a-thon and kick-off for our holiday food drive attracts hundreds of participants from companies, churches, schools, non-profit agencies and the community at large. There will be food & drinks, games, raffle prizes and much more. This walk-a-thon is a fun way to spend the afternoon with co-workers, family and friends while helping our less fortunate neighbors right here in our own community.

On the day of the event, we acknowledge the names of those companies and individuals who have made donations to make our afternoon successful. We invite you to send a representative from your company to provide promotional materials for your products and services and to hand out your donated raffle prize(If you are unable to send someone, we will gladly display your materials for you).
