Description:

iFeed2017

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 third annual event is organized by seven area high school Interact Clubs and their Rotarian advisors. Interact is the highschool equivalent of Rotary that focuses on teaching servant leadership.

Part 1:
Involves packing 75,000 + dried meals in assembly line fashion. The past two years we 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 4th 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.
