Auction takes a bite out of Summer Hunger

Bidders participating in the Summer Hunger Online Auction helped Treasure Coast Food Bank raise more than $16,000, enough to provide 131,576 meals for kids in need this summer.

“We’re so grateful to everyone who took part in our Summer Hunger Online Auction,” said Judith Cruz, President and CEO of Treasure Coast Food Bank. “Summer is always a time of difficulty for families who struggle to make ends meet, and this year with rising costs, it’s especially important to have extra support for our programs that help the community’s most vulnerable.

The auction, which wrapped in June, featured more than 100 items, including theme park passes, entertainment tickets, restaurant gift cards, and several pieces of artwork.

“Thank you to all the businesses and individuals who donated items to our auction, and thanks to everyone who placed a bid,” Cruz said. “It was more than just a bid for a gift. It was a bid to beat hunger.”

Southern Eagle Distributing was one of the proud Auction donors for this great cause.

Treasure Coast Food Bank’s online auctions are a popular way for people to support those in the community in need of food. The next auction is slated for the 2022 holiday season. Follow Treasure Coast Food Bank on social media for more information.
