Knit for Food Knit-a-thon
Sunday from 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM EDT
A zoom link will be sent to participants on 4/10/21. Knitting Needles crossed this event will be livestreamed on YouTube here: http://www.nelkindesigns.com/knitforfood_youtube
Everyone participating in the Knit-a-thon will be committing to knit for 12 hours (or as long as their hands can stand it!). To receive a link to the event you must sign up as a team member and raise a minimum of $100. Throughout the Knit-a-thon, there will be music, knitting and crafting demonstrations, breakout knitting rooms, and speakers to educate and inform you. Don’t knit? That’s OK! Any crafting practice is welcome! Schedule here: http://www.nelkindesigns.com/index.cfm/page/knitathon/sched.htm (And yes, I was inspired by the infamous Gilmore Girls Knit-a-thon episode!) If you want to knit-a-thon, but don’t want to participate in the accompanying zoom event that is a-ok! Just grab your yarn, needles, and snacks and KNIT!
Knit for Food Knit-a-thon is a 12 hour knitting marathon to raise funds and awareness for food insecurity. The money we raise will be equally divided between Feeding America, World Central Kitchen, No Kid Hungry, and Meals on Wheels.

Thanks so much for supporting our effort to craft a better future.
To learn more about these organizations:
Feeding America- The Feeding America network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, working to connect people with food and end hunger. Donors, staff, and volunteers all play an important role in our efforts to end hunger in the United States.
World Central Kitchen- WCK uses the power of food to heal communities and strengthen economies through times of crisis and beyond.
No Kid Hungry- No child should go hungry in a nation as wealthy as ours. But millions of kids are living with hunger right now because of the pandemic. With No Kid Hungry, you can help change that for good.
Meals on Wheels- Today, the average life expectancy is at a record high of 79 years. As we get older, even the most independent among us may experience physical declines or financial hardship that strips away our independence. Add to that an increase in geographic mobility of our families, and the result is millions of seniors left behind, hungry and alone.
