Harvest Festival Relay Races

The 2016 Harvest Fest Relay Races were held on Saturday, October 8th, at the Coupeville Farmers Market. The relay races are an annual fundraiser for the food bank and this year raised over $15,000, to help support our mission of "respectfully providing food to those in need."

The Harvest Fest Relay Races are the only fundraiser Gifts from the Heart holds all year for the food bank. We depend on this fundraiser for about one fifth of our annual expenses. This money helps us fulfill our mission of "respectfully providing food to those in need". If you would like to support your local food bank, the Relay Races are a fun way to do it and have a direct impact on our ability to buy food. Please consider putting a team together and gathering sponsors for this important event!
