Anoka, Minnesota - 10/18/2023 - The Fall Festival at The Anoka County Fairgrounds, which took place from October 6th to 8th, has donated $7,000 to the NACE (North Anoka County Emergency) Food Shelf. This contribution was made possible by the event's attendees; the festival had over 6,000 attendees during its 3 day run. A portion of the gate admission was used for the donation to the NACE.
The Anoka County Fairgrounds' contribution will play a vital role in furthering the NACE Food Shelf's mission to offer essential support to individuals and families in the area.
“This is really helping us right now when we have more than doubled the people we are serving and the food cost has tripled over the last two years,” Susan Diersen, Executive Director at NACE food shelf.
This donation demonstrates how community events can have a positive influence. The Anoka County Fairgrounds, together with The Fall Festival, continues to serve and support the community.
