All net proceeds benefit kidsPACK -- an organization dedicated to feeding homeless and hungry Polk County school children by providing them a backpack of nutritious food each Friday to sustain them on weekends.

The more satisfied the guests are the higher the stacks of Chef Boyardee Beefaroni will grow. To combat hunger in Polk, the BBQ Throwdown will stop at nothing to combine competition with community collaboration.
