Siskiyou Food Assistance (SFA) is once again hosting their Thanksgiving Day tradition, “Run for Food” at the Weed campus of College of the Siskiyous on November 23rd at 8 am. The event supports SFA’s mission as a local food ministry offering nutritious food and prayer to friends and neighbors in need of emergency food. “The 5K eventis fun for the whole family, with award ribbons given to the top three finishers in each age & gender category,” writes Anna Volf, Race Sponsorship Coordinator and SFA Board member.

“The combination of exercise, refreshments, fun music, community togetherness and the opportunity to help others all make for a meaningful start to a grateful day.”

Registration is now open and can be submitted online with a link found on the Facebook event page @SiskiyouFoodAssistance. The event page gives all the details for registration, t-shirt purchase, race packet pick-up information and prizes. 

“We want to be a part of your Thanksgiving!” says Denise Spayd, Executive Director of SFA. “We invite you and your family and friends to start your day of gratitude with a brisk run or walk through the COS Football Field and Bear Trail – you’ll feel better about all the pie you eat later.”

Opportunities for sponsorships, participation and to volunteer can all be found by visiting www.SiskiyouFoodAssistance , or contacting staff at 530-408-6115.
