Linn-Benton Food Share makes a difference in the lives of thousands of community members in need. They supply and glean over a million pounds of food each year and have thousands of volunteers helping prevent hunger and providing food security.

Saturday morning the little country vineyard came to life with the buzz of 450 runners and walkers, piles of volunteers, and numerous family and friends gathered to cheer them on. The runners/walkers set out in waves to traverse the nearly 70 mile course through the backcountry.

But that's not all, once the foot race was off and running, the folks at Harris Bridge Vineyard got to work on re-setting the place for the Barrel to Barrel Picnic to support CSC's fundraising efforts. Over 170 people participated in the picnic and enjoyed a fantastic afternoon.
CSC would like to thank all the sponsors, 80+ volunteers, and 450 runners and walkers for participating in the Barrel to Keg Relay and supporting Community Services Consortium's poverty fighting programs.
Next Year's race is set for the third Saturday in July: Barrel to Keg 110K Relay, July 20, 2013.
