Knock Out Hunger is an annual event that is now in it’s 12th year. Scott Campsall of Okami Kai and Body Fit co-host an open house that is geared towards kids. On Monday December 6th at 6:00PM, there will be face painting, a really cool Karate demo, the local scouts will be in attendance, food and refreshments will be provided compliments of Subway Sandwiches Uxbridge and Cutie Pies and Cakes.
To really make the evening special, Santa has confirmed that he will be paying a visit AND he is bringing a little something for the first 100 children!
While the event takes place on one evening, the food collection takes place over a few weeks. Admission to the event is simply a non-perishable food item. Donating is as easy as bringing in a food item to Body Fit Health Club and putting it under the Christmas tree. All food and money raised go directly to the Loaves and Fishes Food Bank in Uxbridge.
This years holiday wish list includes: Canned tomatoes, Pancake Mix, Syrup, Spaghetti/pasta sauce, Dry cereal, Hamburger Helper, Tuna Helper, Canned fruit, Canned vegetables, Muffin Mix and Pork & Beans.
Typically, many donations to the Food Bank include baby food (formula, cereal, jarred food etc.) but at the moment they don’t have any clients with babies. It’s very thoughtful but the baby food takes up much needed space for the items that they do need.
So come on out and bring the kids! It’s a great event.
