Food For Thought Stock the Pantry Party
The Second Annual Food For Thought Stock the Pantry Party will take place on Thursday, Aug. 20 from 5:30-7:30 pm at the Santa Rosa Beach Pantry.
This year, there will be two categories for donations - Food Drive Sponsors will be competing to see who can collect the most food items. For those businesses who may not be able to collect over 200 items to enter the Food Drive competition, Backpack Sponsorships will also be available. A $500 donation is requested and the group or business will be recognized at the event. Food For Thought expects this year to be another spirited competition and awards will be given for First, Second, and Third place.
Guests are asked to bring 5 food items (suggested items include: plastic jars of peanut butter, plastic jars of jelly, granola bars, fruit cups, snack crackers, and/or breakfast bars) or $5 for entry into the event. The event will feature food provided by Pizza By the Sea and Pop Stop, drinks, a raffle with great prizes, fun for the whole family, including face painting by Abrakadoodle, and opportunities to learn more about Food For Thought.
