Feeding South Florida™ (formerly Daily Bread Food Bank) continues to “wage a war” against hunger with its 2nd Annual March for Hunger 5K Walk/Run on Saturday, March 3. The military-themed event, aligned with Feeding South Florida’s slogan “Fighting Hunger, Feeding Hope,” will once again take place along the acclaimed Hollywood Boardwalk and beach area in Hollywood, Fla.

During the fun and healthy community event, participants will “run miles for meals” to help alleviate hunger for nearly 1 million residents of Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach Counties who are food insecure. For every dollar raised, Feeding South Florida can provide for seven pounds of food and grocery items.

Members of the military, military vehicles, cots, camouflage nets, an army medic, tents and more will be on-site to enhance the military theme.

Corporate sponsorships, ranging from $2,500 to $25,000, are critical in helping Feeding South Florida to make the 2nd Annual March for Hunger a success, and are now available. Corporations may also provide product sponsorships by purchasing or providing gates, bibs, timing tags, food, tables, water, chairs, video/audio equipment, silent auction items, etc.

Current sponsors are Save-A-Lot, Best Buy, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, AvMed, Scripps Network Interactive, Lime Fresh Mexican Grill; in-kind sponsors are O.N.E. Coconut Water, CLIF Bars, Running Wild, Migdalia’s Awards, VSBrooks Advertising, Target, Whole Foods Market Aventura, South Florida Sun-Sentinel, The Sports Authority, PRP Wine International, CalNaturale Svelte and My Buddy Fruits.

“We hope that the 2nd Annual March for Hunger is even more successful than last year’s event,” said Anthea Pennant, director of external affairs for Feeding South Florida. “Not only is it a fun community event, but the funds raised can make a difference in the lives of the many South Floridians facing food insecurity.”
