Ice Bowl 2015
February 21, 2015
Disc golf is coming to a town near you!
Indiantown Disc Golf and Northampton County Parks and Recreation Present the 11th Eastern Shore Ice Bowl at Eastville. Proceeds from this event go to Foodbank's Eastern Shore Branch.
What's Disc Golf you ask? It's golf without clubs and balls. The game follows the same idea except with a disc (similar to frisbees) and the fewest strokes wins the match. The sport is growing and with two 18 hole courses at Indiantown Park, locals have been at it for about 13 years now.
Tee time is 10;30 AM on February 21. This event will go on sun, rain or snow. There will be prizes for the winners in several classes: Men's, Women's, Boys and Girls, and Men's over 50 . Entries will receive a Nesting Mini with the Ice Bowl 2015 logo and a chance at other prizes. Entry fee, the day of the event, is $20 or $15 and a donation of 6 non-perishable food items for the Foodbank. Remember it's not about you winning it's about the ones you help winning.

Feeding America is one of 10 charities chosen to pilot Charity Miles, a free iPhone/Android app that empowers people to earn money for charity while walking, running or biking. Participants choose one of the app’s featured charities and hit the streets. The app will track the participant’s distance and they’ll earn money for their charity. Bikers earn 10¢ per mile; walkers and runners earn 25¢ per mile—all up to an initial $1,000,000 sponsorship pool.

Panera Bread, the Panera Bread Foundation and Feeding America are pleased to announce a strategic alliance that will be in place through December 31, 2013. This partnership builds on Panera Bread’s long history of donating its day-end bread and baked goods as well as proceeds from its Panera Cares Community Bread Box program (donation canisters at registers) to non-profits across the country, and has been forged so that Panera can better use its resources, scale and expertise to provide not only funds but also quality, nutritious food to Feeding America and its network of local food banks.
As such, Panera LLC will be donating, in partnership with its customers, 50% of the funds from its Panera Cares Community Breadboxes at more than 700 company-owned* Panera Bread bakery-cafes to support food sourcing operations at local Feeding America food banks**. The remaining 50% of funds will be used to procure high-quality, frozen soup, which will be directed to the local food bank .
In addition, Panera will match 10% of all funds donated by its customers. This 10% match will be directed to the Feeding America national office and support efforts to source and distribute quality food to the Feeding America network.
