March Foodshare--Final Results
The Minnesota March Foodshare food drive is being characterized as a major success.
State Director Sara Nelson-Pallmeyer issued a thank you to participating agencies, including Winona Radio, for helping out in the statewide drive. Pallmeyer says the 2013 March campaign raised $8.3 million in cash and brought in nearly 4 million pounds of food.
Locally, the March Foodshare drive resulted in 23,775 pounds of food and $33,250 in cash for Winona Volunteer Services which operates the Winona County foodshelves.
