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 this Friday, November 18th from noon to 6 pm and Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm at Walmart.
Food Shelf Manager, Brenda Smith says people will have the option of buying pre-packaged bags at Walmart with different items and prices.
Dee Bender, board member of the Food Shelf as well as a volunteer, says shoppers can also buy their own items to donate, or, if they have food items at home they don’t have to shop at all during the event to help the cause.
KWNG and KCUE will be broadcasting throughout the event both days.
Last year’s Project Food Shelf drive collected a total of 222 bags, 1,726 pounds of food, and $215 dollars in monetary donations.
