Sometimes fighting hunger is just a walk on the beach.

   Some of the most rewarding work we do at the agency is for Feeding South Florida, an organization dedicated to "wage a war" against hunger. It's a noble purpose and they mean "war" quite literally - take a look at some of the work we have done to promote their cause, complete with camo gear and dog tags.
   FSF has organized the 5K Walk/Run March 4 Hunger, this Saturday March 12, from 7:30 to 10:30 am, along the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. And of course, the VSBrooks team will be there, marching with them.
   Most of us are fortunate to sit at a full table each day and don't have to worry where our next meal is coming from. But for too many of our fellow Floridians, hunger is an every day reality. We can make a difference. For every dollar raised, Feeding South Florida can provide nine pounds of food and grocery items. Think about that for a second. For the price of a typical lunch, a hungry person could eat for several days.
   This is why we encourage you to spend a couple hours of your Saturday (nice weather for a walk on the beach!) and help achieve a great turnout for this worthy cause. Registration is $25 in advance or $35 the day of the race.
