We Scare Hunger
Some trick-or-treaters were hunting for more than just candy on Friday. Students across the state collected canned food for We Scare Hunger. It’s one way to earn a ticket to We Day at the Xcel Energy Center.
It’s time again for the big fight! Well, the big food fight. City Pages’ ‘Iron Fork’ competition is returning. The competition puts some of Minnesota’s best bartenders and chefs head-to-head creating delicious dishes and drinks while benefiting the local fold shelf, Second Harvest Heartland.
Kids will be trick or treating for more than just candy on Halloween this week. Many will be collecting non-perishable food items for “We Scare Hunger” — a drive to help fill food banks sponsored by Free the Children. But some adults are getting a head start. The doctor’s office can be a scary place, but Entira Family Clinics are helping to scare away hunger.
On a night that’s devoted to costumes, candy and finding ways to be scary, we’re now seeing kids showing concern about something that’s truly horrifying: hunger. It’s an effort called “We Scare Hunger” and it’s led by the same people who started We Day.
This year, many of the kids who ring your doorbell will be asking if you have any non-perishable foods that you’d like to donate to a food shelf. It’s a community service effort that comes directly out of We Day Minnesota.
A group of students St. Cloud Technical High School first attended We Day in Winnipeg in 2012. They started earning their way to We Day in 2011 after meeting co-founder Craig Kielburger at the 2011 Civic Engagement Leadership Conference.
