September is Hunger Awareness Month. Find Food Bank held its first annual Rock Out To Knock Out Hunger fundraiser partnered with the Palm Springs Office of Sustainability. The event was held at Bar in Palm Springs with a silent auction and live band for dancing on Saturday, September 28th.

Palm Springs City Councilman Paul Lewin announced a proclamation from the city. He presented the proclamation to Lisa Houston, CEO of FIND Food Bank. Guests were encouraged to donate $10.00 and bring canned goods to help feed the hungry in the Valley. Even as little as $1.00 will help as just a dollar will provide 7 meals. Find Food Bank provides food for 80,000 people in the valley each month, an alarming number.

Local Philanthropist Jim Houston said he would match donations up to $10,000 till the end of September. His Birthday was on Saturday and he thought it was a good way to celebrate his birthday by giving back to the community during Hunger Awareness Month.
