Arts & Eats Festival Raised Money for Three Square Food Bank

Hundreds of southern Nevada families in need will be getting a healthy meal thanks to inaugural Arts & Eats festival held this past weekend at Village Square.

The event featured art displays, live music and food from a number of restaurants at the newly remodeled shopping center. In all, the event raised $1,500 for Three Square Food Bank.

The charity can take every dollar raised and translate it into three meals, which means the money raised during the event will provide 4,500 meals to people in need in southern Nevada.
