Two problems face our community at an alarming rate.  Obesity is at a nationwide high and the diabetes rate skyrocketing in our area.  On the other hand, the demand for food at local food pantries is at an all time high with as many as 300 families being fed on a monthly basis at the local Salvation Army alone.  Join us, as we work to lose 2000 pounds as a community, while donating 2000 pounds of non-perishable food items to the FACC and Salvation Army.
