4th ANNUAL DRY-FOOD DONATION CAMPAIGN TO BENEFIT LOCAL FAMILIES
- Over 700 people are expected to show up this Friday, July 1st for Foodwars4, a canned food drive/ Hip-Hop festival benefiting Impact NW. The goal of the event is to raise 20,000 non-perishable food items to be donated directly to the bellies of hungry children via Impact NW’s Sun School Program which targets childhood hunger directly in local schools. 1 in 4 children in the Portland area regularly miss meals and the Foodwars campaign is designed specifically to supplement the available resources. More than 20 local Hip-Hop acts are scheduled to appear including Portland icon CoolNutz. The idea of Foodwars is to see which artists can generate the most response from each individual fanbase to the question “got cans?”. Last year, in one night, the combined efforts of the community raised over 9,000 cans.
