2018 record-setting drive for local food shelf

To the Editor:
Handshakes and high-fives all around McLeod County for making 2018 a record-setting year!
The Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign totals have been reported for additional grant funding and the campaign is officially closed. A county-wide combined total of $117,151.90 worth of cash and pounds of food were brought in during the six-week campaign. Cash outnumbered pounds by nearly $15,000.
The top three Pounds per Capita – Traveling Town Challenge Awards go to Plato with 13.6 pounds per capita, Glencoe with 8.3 pounds per capita, and Silver Lake with 5.3 pounds per capita. We are proud to be part of a community which powers through a call to action to give where you live. McLeod County, you are amazing!
