Mayor's Day of Concern for the Hungry

   $1 donated = 3lbs of food




Saturday, June 15 through Wednesday, June 26

In Denton County, an estimated 159,257 people are experiencing hunger.

The 8th annual Mayor's Day of Concern for the hungry, is a collaborative effot to increase awareness of hunger/food insecurity in our community and encourage residents and businesses to help address hunger in the community through a food/donation drive.

Hunger doesn't take a vacation in the summer,

so we are encouraging the community to be generous during our food drive June 15 through June 26.

Businesses and organizations around Denton will compete to collect the most amount of money and non-perishable food items from June 15 to June 26.


Results from the competition will be announced at the Mayor's Day of Concern at the Denton Community Market on Saturday, June 29.
