Community Partnership Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Gifts from the Heart Food Bank and the Coupeville Farmers Market are proud to announce the 10th Annual Food Bank Harvest Relays, to be held September 23rd, on the Community Green in Coupeville.

What started out as a fun way to celebrate the end of the market season while providing monetary support to the local food bank, the Harvest Relays have become a tradition and a steady source of funding for Gifts From the Heart Food Bank.

The Relays consist of 5 different games/challenges, all relating in someway to food and particularly to local food.

The course is laid out for two teams at a time and none of the events are published prior to the run.

Past relay events have included such things as shelling dry beans while wearing gloves and sitting in a rocking chair, pumpkin “putting”, cabbage targets, fish flinging, and many more.

In honor of the 10th anniversary, some prior events will return.

This year, 2017, will mark the 10th anniversary of the Relays. While the date has changed, mostly due to adverse weather the last three years, to the end of September and not the last day of the market, they remain a wonderful opportunity to do good and have fun as a community.

There are many ways to participate: form a relay team (5 people) team forms available at Gifts from the Heart and the Market make a monetary donation for a specific team make a monetary donation in general be an enthusiastic member of the audience for the Relays.

Save the date – Saturday, September 23rd.

On The Community Green and in the heart of the Coupeville Farmers Market.

Races start at noon, but come early to support your team!
