There is no purchase necessary to participate in this event, but diners can make a contribution to SFBFS to support a family in need! For every $10 donation, diners will receive one entry to win a $50 gift card to one of the participating restaurants. As a thank you for a $50 contribution, diners will receive a Run to Feed the Hungry beanie, a donation of $100 earns the diner a Run to Feed the Hungry nylon back pack and as a thank you for a donation of $250 or more, the diner will receive a Run to Feed the Hungry travel mug and gloves. Check out photos of prizes here.

To increase their chances of winning a gift card, participants can snap a photo of their family enjoying a meal during Eat to Feed the Hungry wearing your favorite Run to Feed the Hungry shirt then post it to SFBFS’ Facebook page. Each photo posted from a different dining experience will equal one more entry to win a gift card!

Wear your favorite Run to Feed the Hungry shirt from any year out to dinner next week. It’s an easy way to support SFBFS’ mission and help feed a family in need.
