Let’s Scare Away Hunger.

Hunger is scary for families, seniors, and children in need in our community. For 31 years, 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 more than 750,000 meals, making an incredible difference when the need was greater than ever before. Our goal this year is to raise 1,000,000 meals for neighbors in need!

What started as a neighborhood food donation drive has evolved into a virtual drive that includes hundreds of businesses, schools, community groups, and churches across the CSRA — all united by a common cause to fill plates and hearts in our community. Our virtual platform empowers you to leverage our buying power so that every $2 you raise places 5 nutritious meals on the tables of our neighbors in need.

It’s Spooky To Be Hungry Campaign Receives Generous Matching Challenge from Longtime Food Bank Advocates

Local renowned philanthropists Rob and Pam Johnston have pledged to match every donation made to this year’s campaign going forward, up to $100,000. This means every dollar you donate will be doubled. That means every $2 donated provides 10 meals to children, seniors and families experiencing hunger in our community.
