Successful Grimes Hunger Fight

Monday, February 20, 2017

The 2017 Grimes Hunger Fight was held Friday, February 10 and Saturday, February 11 and packaged a total of 57,240 meals with 351 volunteers. Thank you to the many from St. Peter who supported this effort by participating and donating funds. During a 5 year period the Grimes community has packaged 250,920 meals! What a wonderful testimony about what a community pulling together can do. This is the first year the hunger fight had a Friday night event for high school students. About 85 kids volunteered and packaged more than 12,000 meals in just over an hour! The event was a bit late getting started due to the triple overtime basketball game but the kids hung in there were able to wrap things up shortly after 11 p.m.
