Chowdah Chowdown

October 28, 2023

Ashawagh Hall

Thank you to our extraordinary community for coming out in support of the Springs Food Pantry. We loved being able to gather with you again to taste our 18 amazing soups and to crown our 2023 Chowdah Champ, Art Wolf of Smokin' Wolf BBQ. With your help, we raised over $22,000!

Housing costs, rising fuel and utility expenses, combined with inflationary food costs, are forcing more and more of our neighbors to look to us for assistance. We are currently feeding over 225 families every Wednesday and our weekly food distribution expenses now exceed $20,000. Your generosity and commitment make a difference.
