 24th Annual Frostbite Food Drive through Feb 4

On an average day, The Father Fred Foundation Food Pantry serves 71 local families. The 24th annual Frostbite Food drive is crucial to ensuring the pantry is stocked for the next several cold months. One in four families in our community feel the stress of food insecurity (daily meals are uncertain). This year’s goal is collect 900 boxes of food to fill a semi truck with food donations. “What Father Fred has to offer local families in need is a direct result of the generosity of our community,” shared Deb Haase, Executive Director. Many of our guests are working but just cannot seem to make ends meet.
