MEND’s 2021 Green Bean Gala

That’s a wrap for 2021 – together, you helped raise over $80,000 in support of local hunger relief and fresh food access for all! Thank you!

See  you (hopefully in person) in 2022!

Thanks to the power of video, you can still watch highlights from The Green Bean Gala at your leisure!

Thank you to our Sponsors!
