The KARE 11 Food Fight is back for a second round! After the success of last year’s event, raising more than 860,000 pounds of food, the teams are at it again to help feed our hungry neighbors.
Tomorrow, November 25, the evening news anchor teams of Julie Nelson, Randy Shaver, Belinda Jensen and Eric Perkins will compete from 7:30 am to 7:00 pm to collect the most food and funds. Food and monetary donations will be collected on-site and online at 2harvest.org/kare11.
Whose team are you on? Find you favorite anchors from 7:30 am to 7:00 pm at the locations listed below.
Team Julie: Byerly’s Ridgedale (13801 Ridgedale Dr., Hopkins)
Team Randy: Whole Foods Maple Grove (12201 Elm Creek Blvd.)
Team Bel: Kowalski’s Woodbury (8505 Valley Creek Rd.)

If you cannot make it to one of the four locations, you can donate online during the food fight at 2harvest.org/kare11. Every dollar donated will equal up to three meals.
Special incentives will be awarded to the team that generates the highest amount of online donations during power hours (9 am-10 am, 12 pm-1 pm, 6-6:30 pm), overall online donations, and for the highest food pounds collected. The Minnesota Timberwolves have donated a suite to be awarded to the individual making the largest online donation during the food fight.
Most Needed Items: At this time of year, protein (peanut butter, canned tuna, canned chicken) and cereal are in especially high demand. Please avoid anything in a glass container.
