Come out and raise the visibility of this essential issue!! Partnering organizations include: Second Harvest Food Bank, Forsyth Backpack Program, and The Forsyth School Pantry Collaborative (for the Collaborative contact Pastor Paul Stutzman at email@example.com or Cynthia Silber at firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you to our dear friend Brad Stoltz who conceived of the idea of this event on behalf of the children and has worked tirelessly to bring it to life.
