Northern Wisconsin State Fair Goers Give Generously to Feed My People
CHIPPEWA FALLS - Northern Wisconsin State Fair patrons and church goers donated generously to Feed My People Food Bank Sunday, July 14, totaling 11,721 pounds of food.
Fair goers had the opportunity to donate nonperishable food items or funds in exchange for a $1 coupon good for any of the fair food vendors. The nondenominational worship service held in the grandstands also took a special collection for Feed My People.
Feed My People would like to thank everyone who donated, as well as fair organizers, for helping the food bank assist individuals struggling with hunger.
Feed My People Food Bank supplies over 6 million pounds of food and household products annually to more than 100 nonprofit food-assistance programs in 14 counties in west central Wisconsin. For additional information, contact Feed My People at 715-835-9415 or visit www.fmpfoodbank.org.
