FROSTBITE FOOD DRIVE
2019 Frostbite Food Drive begins this Saturday, January 26-February 3.
On an average day, The Father Fred Foundation Food Pantry serves 70 local families. The 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). “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.
