Lace Up Those Running Shoes for Eliot Festival Day!

On September 30th, the Eliot Festival Day 25th Anniversary 5k Road Race needs your help to be an awesome, fun, family event and to succeed in it’s mission to help alleviate the 68 hours of hunger that some children experience between schools free lunch on Fridays and schools free breakfast on Mondays. This past summer, we fed 22 Eliot and South Berwick children every weekend. That number can easily double once school starts. This race is a major source of our funding. This event will take place at the Eliot Fire Station, State Road (Rte. 103), Eliot, Maine. All race proceeds go to End 68 Hours of Hunger Eliot/South Berwick to buy food for hungry kids.
