Feed the Need party feeds guests while helping feed the hungry
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — WAFER Food Pantry held an open house block party called Feed the Need on Sunday.
People could come to the WAFER headquarters on Causeway Bvld. to enjoy songs from local musicians, food, adult beverages and karaoke.
There were also tours of WAFER, where people could learn about how they distribute their food and talk with board members and WAFER staff.
WAFER’s executive director, Erin Waldhart, said she’s thrilled to be able to speak with so many new people.
“The questions are great. They’re gaining a lot of information, and most often when people come in here for a tour they are surprised by all the different services that we offer,” Waldhart said .
There were also some nice prizes people could win. Party guests could enter for a chance to win a four pack of Brewers tickets or a pair of tickets to Country Boom. Both prizes are worth around $200.
