Rockin’ for the Hungry

November 29th-December 3rd
6:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.

During Rockin’ for the Hungry, community members can join Food Gatherers, ann arbor’s 107one, and Kroger to raise one million meals for our community.

Gifts made during Rockin’ will be matched 1:1 thanks to the generosity of the Harold & Kay Peplau Family Fund, Kroger, and our Power Hour Sponsors.  This annual food and fund drive will feature live interviews, matching funds for financial gifts, and a food drive.  Help put more meals on more tables during the holiday season and all year long!
