SavorSyracuse helps the Food Bank raise community awareness about their hunger-relief mission, and to raise funds in support of our programs and services. Last year, SavorSyracuse raised more than $54,000 in net proceeds and welcomed more than 800 attendees. This year, as we deal with the harsh reality of our troubled economic climate, your support could not be more important!
