Perpetual Pitch-In Project

Eat. Help other people eat. What could be easier?

We invite you to host a pitch-in November 12-14 to help combat hunger. Register your group, select the date and time, and invite your guests to bring a dish to share as well as goods and/or cash to support your favorite food service organization. There's lots of room for fun, too. Check out these creative ideas and sign up today.
