To say that September was busy would be an understatement!
Our fundraising efforts for the Trim Hunger campaign totaled $2200.
$1835 of that total will be staying local with the Great Plains Food Bank. This amount equates to over 7,340 meals! The remaining $400 will be used towards the national Trim Hunger campaign efforts.
If we weren’t baking or standing behind the soup line we were volunteering at the Great Plains Food Bank. 12 TSPA Fargo employees volunteered a total of 26 hours of time at the food bank during the month of September. That is an average of 2.25 hours/volunteer.
- a grand total of 2,457 pounds of food was packed
- the food bank calculates that 1 meal=1.2 pounds of food
- this equates to 2,048 meals
- at 3 meals/day we would have fed a family of 4 for 170 days!
Our Trim Hunger bake sale was the most successful bake sale TSPA Fargo has had to date! For our “cook out” we decided to try soup and bread. It was a huge success thanks to the donations from these incredible sponsors: Lucky’s 13, Granite City, Olive Garden, and Texas Roadhouse.
Thank you to everyone who participated, donated, and sponsored our 2015 Trim Hunger campaign! We are already anticipating next year’s campaign to be even more successful : )
