Cultivate Food Rescue hosts its annual fundraiser in South Bend on Thursday.

SOUTH BEND — Cultivate Food Rescue will hold its annual fundraising event from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at the Island at Century Center in South Bend. Supporters, volunteers, and sponsors will taste samples from local chefs, listen to live music from “The 1985” and raise money to provide 1,000 hungry students in the community with weekend meals for the 2021-22 school year.

Prior to COVID, over 45,000 children were taking advantage of free and reduced lunches. Cultivate’s backpack meals aim to fill in the 68-hour gap between Friday at lunch and Monday morning at breakfast.
