Hunger is an ongoing problem that affects the well-being of our entire communities, and numbers are increasing. Throughout Otter Tail and Wadena counties, over 5,400 children and individuals are facing food insecurity daily, according to a United Way news release.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the seven emergency food pantries in Otter Tail and Wadena counties and the eight Children’s Feeding Backpack Programs. United Way serves as a partner and fiscal host to the Friends of Friends Fighting Hunger event.
