The Jacksonville FOODFIGHT, that is, the annual fund raiser put on to benefit Second Harvest food bank of Jacksonville. This years event was held last Thursday, and hosted nearly 70 local restaurants and food service providers. Bi-Lo Winn Dixie sponsored the event for the first time this year.
For 23 years now, the Jacksonville FOODFIGHT has raised thousands of dollars for Second Harvest, a non-profit organization that collects and distributes food through nearly 500 partner agencies in the central Florida area alone. Hundreds came out on Thursday, despite the heavy rains that Tropical Storm Andrea had brought to the region, and sampled everything from 5-Star cuisine to pizza and barbecue.
