An annual event in North Dakota to fill the floor of the Fargodome football stadium with food donated for the needy at holiday time continues to grow.
Students from about 50 schools participated this year in the 12th Fill the Dome event. Students sold a record 17.1 tons of food bags at sponsoring grocery stores in the area.
Combined with food drives from the schools, collections from citizens and financial donations, their work will provide about 300,000 meals for needy families.
Fargo Davies High School senior Sophie Frappier, whose school collected the most food, says there’s a lot of prime in winning that competition but adds that it’s all “for the greater good.”
