Join Ozarks Food Harvest and 105.9 KGBX for the 21st annual Hungerthon! This radio-thon, hosted by Kevin & Liz, raises money for our Weekend Backpack Program.

The program provides food insecure children with a bag of nutritious meals and snacks to take home every weekend of the school year. Listeners can call 890-KGBX (5429) to make a pledge, or they can stop by to make a donation at the event. For a donation of $300, or $25 a month, a child will receive two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, two snacks and drinks every weekend for an entire school year.

Event hours:
Friday: 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sunday: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Monday: 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.
