Can I bring canned and boxed food to donate?


Yes! It is our goal to Fill a Ford With Food! Bring canned and boxed foods the night of the race. If you can guess the closest number that will fill the Ford, sponsored by Midwest Motors, you win a free Harvest Moon Run registration for next year! (No glass products, please!) Our local Girl Scout troop then delivers it to the Eureka Food Pantry on our behalf!




How much money did you raise for the hungry last year?


In 2020, we donated $7000 to the Eureka Food Pantry and the Eureka-Pacific Elks Lodge Weekend Backpack Food Program!

Our donation to the Elks Backpack Food Program provides food for school aged children on the weekends and we subsidize the Eureka Food Pantry during their meager months when they are in desperate need of restocking their shelves.

Your generosity and our partnership with these 100% volunteer organizations, provide so many families and the elderly food throughout the year.
