To give back to the local community, Suwannee Springfest is proud to host a new annual food drive to support the Suwannee Valley Food Bank. Any festival-goer who brings at least 5 cans or non-perishable food items to the festival office will receive a commemorative 2011 festival poster. Please help Suwannee Springfest support the community and feed those less fortunate.
