The Northside Business Association (NBA) presented $6,200, the equivalent of 34,000 pounds of food, to Northside food pantries during the Jan. 12 meeting. At the December event more than 600 people were served pancake breakfast, plus children sat on Santa’s lap and received a goodie bag of treats.

Two annual breakfast events are held by the NBA to benefit Northside children and food pantries. The Breakfast with the Bunny event will be held Saturday, April 1, from 8–10:30 am at Benvenuto’s Italian Grill, 1845 Northport Dr. Please visit for further details and ticket locations.
