Every year the Red Wing Area Food Shelf counts on community businesses and residents to help them in their food drive activities.
The annual KWNG-KCUE radio event, Project Food Shelf, is happening Friday from noon to 6 pm and Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm at Walmart. Dee Bender, Board member of the Food Shelf as well as a volunteer, says people will have the option of buying pre-packaged bags at Walmart.
Shoppers can also buy their own items to donate. KWNG and KCUE will be broadcasting throughout the event and Bender says it’s always awesome to see the trailer fill up with donations.
New Food Shelf Manager, Brenda Medina, says she’s excited to wrap up her first month on the job with the big food collection push.
