Let’s Scare Away Hunger.

Hunger is scary, especially for families affected by the COVID-19 health crisis. Many community members who have never needed food assistance before now need help, and the seniors, children and families who were struggling before the crisis need us more than ever.

For 28 years, hundreds of neighborhoods, businesses, organizations and volunteers have linked arms with Golden Harvest Food Bank to scare away hunger through the It’s Spooky to Be Hungry® Drive. Last year, friends like you raised enough funds for almost 250,000 meals. 

This year, we’re going virtual to help ensure the safety of our community — and that means you can make a bigger impact than ever!
Every $1 you raise places 3 nutritious meals on the tables of our neighbors in need.
