Second Harvest of the Big Bend invites the community to our 2019 Blue Jeans & Blazers benefit to celebrate our work and support those suffering from hunger.

Second Harvest distributes millions of pounds of food every year to hungry families in the 11-county region of the Big Bend. Blue Jeans & Blazers will raise funds for various year-long programs including mobile pantries, disaster relief, seniors and child nutrition initiatives.
“Last year’s Blue Jeans and Blazers was a great success. We surpassed our fundraising goals, allowing us to serve even more families and individuals in the Big Bend,” said Second Harvest CEO Rick Minor. “We are looking forward to an expanded event that will incorporate community partners and donors in a fun-filled night to fight hunger in our community.”
