This tasty event is a fund raiser for the Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program (MCHHP). What better way to raise funds and awareness about hunger prevention. (I’ve heard the polite way of saying hunger is food insecure.) The event brings in many of the restaurants all under one big tent. Participants buy the card as shown above. Then they go tasting. We didn’t get to all of the restaurants but certainly enjoyed the samples. Even only a half-dozen samples were enough for a satisfying meal.
MCHHP has a creative and hopefully effective Backpack Program. The idea is an extension of National School Lunch Program. Each Friday, those students are sent home with food in their backpacks to address their weekend food insecurity. Full program details are available at their website. Every bite helps.
The weather was September fantastic. Pleasant temperatures under a blue sky. It always feels better to support a worth cause and help up those in need.
