National Recovery Month and Hunger Action Month are celebrated during the month of September. Several events are put together throughout the Kenai Peninsula during this time to help draw awareness of these two important issues. One such event was the film “The Anonymous People” shown Sunday, September 14th at the Orca Theater. More attendees than expected for a Sunday morning watched the movie. The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank partnered with Serenity House to help publicize the event. The Food Bank would like to thank the Serenity House, attendees, and those who donated cash and nonperishable food items. We received 295 pounds of non-perishable food items. One meal equals 1 1/2 pounds which will provide 196 meals for our hungry neighbors plus $80 dollars from anonymous donors.
Thank you to all that helped make this event a success during Hunger Action Month and National Recovery Month.
