Rockin’ for the Hungry

Rockin’ for the Hungry 2021

November 30th – December 4th, 2021

This holiday season may feel more normal, but many of our neighbors continue to face food insecurity. 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!
