We continue to see many families struggle in our current economy. Over the last few years, requests for food assistance have risen in excess of 50%. Tens of thousands of our neighbors are facing adversity, and with your assistance, we are able to help them provide nutritious meals for their family. The Central PA Food Bank is able to distribute more than one million pounds of food and grocery products each and every month, which is equivalent to 50 tractor-trailer loads of food every month. We distribute food to approximately 550 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters that directly feed people who are hungry in 27 central Pennsylvania counties.

On behalf of the families, children and seniors we serve, we are sincerely grateful for the compassion you share. [...] Thank you for your commitment to make a difference in our community.

FoodMachine Update for Saturday

So there are a few updates concerning this weekend's Foodmachine Charity Tournament...

1. We will be using the current draft of the Steamroller 2012 Tournament rules. This format is not scheduled to become public until next year so this will probably be your first and only peek at the rules before they drop in January.

2. Rumors are flying about the number of cans people are bringing ( over 500 for one person!). It's not too late to hit up your family and friends for extra donations!

3. Scott has made TWO trophies for the event.  
The first is for the winner of the tournament:  http://flic.kr/p/aHQLYv

The second trophy is actually a playable model and will have rules for using him in the event.  So whoever brings in the most cans will get THE CAN-IVEAN http://flic.kr/p/aHQLJk

Hope to see a bunch of you on Saturday!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving,
