This is the third year the Food Bank has held the golf outing. In 2015 the Food Bank provided groceries to 2,000 families and processed over 1 million pounds of food in their warehouse.

Frank Hasner, Director of the Food Bank, said “This annual event is an opportunity for neighbors to help neighbors. The golf outing is one of the Food Bank’s largest fund raisers of the year. Everyone has a wonderful time, and it is such a great feeling knowing that you are helping your neighbors in their basic need of putting food on the table for their families.”
