Second Harvest Food Bank's Happy Hour

Last Wednesday, I went with Meghan and Karen to Second Harvest Food Bank's Happy Hour.

I wasn't sure what to expect but I was interested to see!

I got a little lost on the way (ahem scary part of town) but was only a little late.  I entered the beautiful lobby, got my wristband and free drink ticket.

We entered the warehouse and headed over to the area where the happy hour was set up.

First things first--the drinks.

I forget what mine was called (the one in a normal glass) but it was supposed to taste like a creamsicle.  It was a little too mediciney tasting for me.

Next up we checked out the food.

The peanut sauce was like melted peanut butter...soo good!

And you can't forget dessert!

Very tasty!

Meghan explained a lot about how the Second Harvest Food Banks works.  It really is such a neat facility.

Then we got to tour the Darden Kitchen.

It's huge!

We headed back out and went over and had a little too much fun at the photo booth (not sure that's possible!)

We also spotted Francis from Masterchef.

It was a fun evening for a great cause. Second Harvest Food Bank is such an amazing part of the community

"Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a private, nonprofit organization that collects, stores and distributes donated food to more than 550 feeding partners in six Central Florida counties: Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia.

Collectively in fiscal year 2012/2013, Second Harvest distributed over 39 million pounds of food.Second Harvest Food Bank is Central Florida's hunger relief network.  

We multiply the power of giving and distribute up to $9 worth of groceries for every dollar donation. "

 I really hope to volunteer there soon!
