On Saturday, January 26, 2019, Friends of Friends Fighting Hunger is holding their 11th annual event benefiting local food shelves and Weekend Feeding Backpack programs. Don’t miss out on silent and live auctions and supper at Thumper Pond. After an impactful event last year, raising over $88,000 dollars to help families and neighbors living with food insecurities, Friends of Friends welcomes YOU to join in this 11th annual event!
During this Otter Tail County school year, 466 children will have been provided with shelf stable and easily prepared food-filled backpacks to bring home over the weekend. Why is this necessary? It is necessary because here, in Otter Tail County, we have children who, without their weekday school breakfast and lunch, go without food over the weekend. YOUR generosity feeds children who may otherwise have two days of hunger before returning to school on Monday.
