7th Annual

Strike Out Hunger Boys with Tray

Strike Out Hunger is a multi-prong initiative that unites companies, individuals, and advocates to alleviate hunger in Mercer County. There were already 55,000 local families struggling to make ends meet* and the pandemic has exponentially increased this number. Strike Out Hunger will provide meals, fresh produce, and non-perishables to food pantry beneficiaries during the summer months when food becomes even more scarce for households in our community.
