For each dollar raised through the Hops for Hunger event, Southern Anoka Community Assistance will be able to purchase eight pounds of food. To put that into perspective, one $40 ticket will buy 320 pounds of food.

Southern Anoka Community Assistance serves approximately between 39,500 to 45,000 pounds of food monthly to nearly 2,000 families in crisis. Southern Anoka Community Assistance also works with community partners, schools, and police and fire departments to bring food and hygiene products to students in need. The nonprofit also provides a homeless youth program and is in partnership with the 5 Anoka County food shelf.

The event will take place on Saturday, March 26th from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Solar Arts Building at 711 15th Avenue NE, Minneapolis. Tickets are $40. All proceeds will benefit the Southern Anoka Community Assistance Food Shelf. To reserve tickets, visit, 2016 Hops for Hunger 4.0.
