Foodstock was another exciting event to support Food for the Hungry. On December 2nd, the Knox County Memorial Theater was filled with music in this living history tribute concert. The music featured the highly requested return of Tom Petty with guest stars Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham and a headlining tribute to The Rolling Stones. The event raised $2,050.00 and 662 food items (which is ½ truck of food).
Praisestock was an amazing event that was held on Sunday August 18, 2019. Praisestock is an annual outdoor live Christian music festival highlighting outreach in the community, held at Ariel-Foundation Park. Praisestock raised $1,500 for Food for the Hungry. We thank them for their support of our drive. Please enjoy these pictures from the 2019 Praisestock.
