Harvest For Hunger


There are so many food truck and booze events in town that it can be hard to pick which one to attend. After all, neither your budget nor your waistline can handle a new food and drink event every week. One good tip to selecting the right event is this: Pick the most charitable one. Yeah, that might rule out some of the more debauched, drunken events, and that’s a bummer if you’re looking for an evening of hedonic booze-fueled revelry. But if you’re down for a tasteful evening of good food and a quality drink or two, then maybe the Harvest for Hunger is for you. The River City Food Bank, Sacramento’s oldest continually serving food bank, is opening its doors on the evening of Sept. 25 to raise funds to help feed and educate the more than 6,300 children, families and seniors who visit the food bank each month. For the charitable price of $25, guests get a tour of this 40-year-old Sacramento institution, a free drink ticket, and a drawing ticket for the chance to win a free tour on the Sac Brew Bike for 14 friends. Local food trucks and beer and wine vendors will be on location to offer up tasty bites and drinks while the Brian Lee Bender Band provides live music. If you want to give back to the community on this one special night, visit here.
