The annual Mayors’ Hunger Luncheon will be held at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at Golden Leaf Banquet and Convention Center in Davenport.   The mayors of the Quad Cities will serve a simple lunch of bread and hearty soup. The message of the event is “We eat simply so that others may simply eat.’’

Since 1992, In From the Cold, with the assistance of the United Way of the Quad Cities Area, has distributed more than $300,000 to fund agencies which assist the hungry and homeless.

Everyone is encouraged to attend the luncheon and contribute. Tickets are $20 per person; tables for 10 cost $175.  For more information, go to www.infromthecoldqc.org or call (563) 421-4343.

In From the Cold recently announced the 2011 grant awards. In From the Cold distributed $2,500 to Community Health Care, Inc.; $2,000 to Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc.; $1,600 to Project NOW,  Inc.;  $1,500 to Winnie's Place shelter for women and children; $800 to Vera French Community Mental Health Center; and $600 to the Hunger Ministry of Churches United of the QCA.
