Hunger Solutions is having a fundraising dinner at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 17 in Muskingum Park on Front Street.
Hunger Solutions was created by a collaboration among Peoples Bank, Memorial Health System and Marietta College. Bricker & Eckler Attorneys at Law have joined the group as task force members. The purpose of the group is to raise awareness of hunger in the area as well as identify and support resources to combat food insufficiency in the Mid-Ohio Valley, including nutrition education programs, local pantries, and the Southeast Ohio Foodbank.
Tickets are $100 (+$5.99 handing fee per ticket) and proceeds will be added to the Hunger Solutions Fund of the Marietta Community Foundation. Master Chef Emad Al-Masri of the Buckley House is preparing the gourmet meal. Live music will be provided as well as a cashless bar (payments by credit card only).
