Each year in September, the Swordfish Grill and Tiki hosts a very special event – “Giving Back”. The event is sold out every year and the recipient is a locally based charity.
We are pleased to announce that “Hungers End” has been chosen for the 2018 event. Vicky & Carl Snyder are the founders of Hungers End Inc. They operate a food pantry and Blessing Closet in downtown Bradenton. They also serve a weekly meal every Monday night. To date they have served over 20,000 meals and distributed 100,000 lbs. of free food this year. Hungers End mission is to provide food, clothing and hygiene products to the homeless and those in need in our community.
“Hungers End” partners with other great organizations in Manatee and Sarasota counties, including: Mayors Feed The Hungry Program, The Blessing Bags Project, F.E.L.T., Trinity Without Borders (Serving 75 families free groceries each month at Robins apartments), Palmetto’s Community Blessing Day annual event, Manatee County Food Bank (Meals on Wheels Plus), Sonny’s BBQ Buy a meal Give a Meal program and various outreaches into neighborhoods. They are a 501c3, 100% volunteer organization that has operated in Manatee county for over 3 years.
Vicky & Carl took a small step of faith a few years back after seeing how great a need there was in our city and formed Hungers End Inc. Since then, they have had a box truck donated to them from Community Vision Church in Laredo Texas, and have been Blessed to have so many amazing partnerships and people join together for this common goal.
The event is sponsored by the Swordfish Grill and Tiki, The Sarasota Post, Sande Caplin & Associates and “Music Sponsor”, Visit A Paradise Realty. The date of the event in September will be announced soon along with the music line-up!
