Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara has announced the 2019 Mayor's Hunger Luncheon.
The event will take place Tuesday, October 1st, with McNamara providing the keynote speech. Afterwards, the city will provide a simple lunch of soup, salad and bread. The luncheon is intended to raise awareness of, and funds for, those suffering from food insecurity.
Last year's event raised about $10,000, and McNamara said he hopes this year's luncheon can provide even more aid.
