Ready, Set, Bag! Supports Local Food Banks

Ready, Set, Bag! is partnering with local food banks to feed hungry families. Together with their fans and sponsors, Ready, Set, Bag! is generously donating 100% of their advertising revenue from their recently launched blip.tv channel and $1.00 of each ticket sale (both in theatres and on DVD) for their Ready, Set, Bag! documentary film. Ready, Set, Bag! has already donated enough funds for over 4,500 meals and arranged for other online artists including JibJab, AutoTuneTheNews, Sarah Austin and Mike Relm to help create content and contribute to this overall effort to help fight hunger.

Ready, Set, Bag! Documentary Film
Every February competitive grocery baggers from across the country meet in Las Vegas to vie for the title of National Best Bagger. Ready, Set, Bag! explores the lives of eight state champions, following these delightfully fun, quintessentially American characters from local contests to their moment on the national stage. Ready Set Bag! has been selected for the upcoming Sonoma International Film Festival. The screening will be taking place on Saturday, April 17 at 9:30 am.
