Support Hunger Action Month this September by bringing along a teddy bear to the Hungry Bear Feeding South Florida event, featuring a performance by pre-teen rock band KRUSH. Families can help fill Feeding South Florida’s 36-foot trailer as they enjoy an afternoon of fun-filled, teddy bear themed activities at The Shops at Boca Center.
Attendees can paint their own teddy bear banks for a donation of $2 or any canned, non-perishable item, or participate in a basketball clinic with dribbling tips and free throw competitions. Princes and Princesses can relax in the Hibernation Lounge and enjoy story time with their bears. A Beary Good Parade will walk through the Boca Courtyard at 4:30 and 5:30, and pre-teen pop rock band KRUSH will perform a KRUSH HUNGER benefit concert in the Boca Courtyard from 6 – 8 p.m. See the schedule for a full list of activities.
Guests can enjoy a teddy bear meal at BRIO Tuscan Grille or Rocco’s Taco’s, each of which will donate a percentage of the proceeds to Feeding South Florida. The Beary Orange Juice Bar at Joseph’s Classic Market will host an orange juice tasting and will donate a portion of the proceeds from all purchases between 4 and 5 p.m. to Feeding America.
Feeding South Florida aims to fill a 36-food trailer with donated items. Visitors can donate canned goods and non-perishable items at any of The Shop’s at Boca Center’s Orange Centers the day of the event or between August 29 and September 6.
The event is a local initiative of Feeding America’s Hunger Action Month (September 2014). Hunger Action Month is a nation-wide event to increase awareness of hunger, an often silent and unseen issue, and to inspire the community to help. Feeding South Florida serves Palm Beach, Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe Counties. It is one of Feeding America’s 202 food banks and the only Feeding America food bank in South Florida. Serving 30 percent of the Florida’s in-need population, Feeding South Florida is the largest food bank in the state. Each year, Feeding South Florida distributes nearly 37 million pounds of food and assists 871,920 individuals.
