Food Bank Miles for Meals Glow is a night 5K Run/Walk to benefit the Coastal Bend Food Bank.  Come join us for this fun night event to help the Food Bank.  Unable to do a 5K Run/Walk  then please sign-up as a donor only and receive the same event packet as the other registered participants.  The Food Bank does not only help people in Corpus Christi, the Food Bank serves the needs of people with hunger in 11 different counties in our area.

Come and get your glow on.  Join us as we glow in the dark along the streets of Portland and the path of the private golf course.  This night run-walk will take you onto the North Shore Country Club where you will have a view of Corpus Christi Bay during your run or walk.  Your participation in our Miles for Meals Glow helps raise needed funds for the Food Bank.  Don’t want to go but just want to glow; become a donor only and you can still get the shirt.

The Coastal Bend Food Bank reduces hunger in South Texas through food distribution and nutrition education.”  The Food Bank served on average 35,600 individuals per month utilizing 154 distribution sites in 11 counties.  In 2015, HEB donated 1,562,016 pounds of product which makes them an invaluable partner in this collective effort to feed the hungry.
