iFeed is coming!Written by Tracy Ballzer
Chris from Logan High School's Interact Club stopped in this morning to talk about the 4th Annual iFeed!
Created in 2015, iFeed is a proclaimed holiday in La Crosse. iFeed is a one day event that brings the greater La Crosse community together to help alleviate hunger in the world and our own communities. The fourth annual event is organized by seven area high school Interact Clubs and their Rotarian advisors. Interact is the high school equivalent of Rotary that focuses on teaching servant leadership.
Involves packing 100,000 + dried meals in assembly line fashion. The past two years they have shipped these meals to Nicaragua.
Part 2: Includes the collecting of non-perishable food items in the weeks preceding iFeed. The collections are all brought to Logan High School November 3rd for the area's largest food-drive. The items will be counted, sorted, and transported to the Hunger Task Force to be distributed to area food banks.
During Rotary iFeed:
26,278 food items were collected
78,102 meals were packed and sent to Nicaragua & Puerto Rico
32,474 food items were collected (about 12 tons of food)
62,484 meals were packed and sent to Nicaragua
30,212 food items were collected
54,718 meals were sent to Nicaragua
This year, they are planning to crush last year's numbers, shooting to be the largest one-day food drive in Wisconsin EVER! Please bring any non-perishable food items to Logan High School on November 3rd!
