Dayton, Vikings’ Peterson To Raise Food Shelf Cash

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov.-elect Mark Dayton and Vikings running back Adrian Peterson are appearing together on Tuesday to raise money for food shelves.

The St. Paul fundraiser for northeastern Minnesota food shelves is hosted by incoming Democratic Senate Minority Leader Tom Bakk.

The Vikings are one of the event’s corporate sponsors, along with companies including Minnesota Power, Thomson Reuters and U.S. Steel.

Bakk says the food aid is needed as families struggle with unemployment and rising food costs. It’s the fourth year he’s hosted the event.

    You better load up on as much food as you can, because Dayton will be taking your money with his new taxes

  2. Joe Hanson says:

    So what’s the reason for Dayton’s participation? Does he expect additional donations because he’s involved or is he going to write a big check from that trust fund of his?
