On Saturday July 21st The McLennan County Hunger Coalition partnered with Bohemia Magazine to raise 140 pounds of food for the Shepherd’s Heart Food Pantry. The Event featured a variety of Waco artists and performers as well as vendors and wine tasting. Some musicians included The Horton Duo, Cordial Roy, Well Behaved Young Men and the Fly Seks, a full list of venders and performers can be seen here.

The event was free and patrons were encouraged to bring canned or dry food to donate to the McLennan County Hunger Coalition. The Hunger Coalition gave all the food collected to shepherds heart in Waco. This food will help the pantry finish out the summer months before kids return to school in the fall.  The event was an overall success and the Hunger Coalition hopes to work with Bohemia in the future to continue to raise awareness of hunger and poverty in McLennan County as well as build the relationship between the arts and nonprofit communities in Waco.
