Wednesday, October 4, was a wonderful day at the Dixie Classic Fair. We ended the day with all eight twenty-two foot trucks filled to capacity and a total of 76,970 food items!
Thank you to all who donated, the over 100 volunteers who helped distribute tickets and sort the food, and to the fair employees who were so wonderfully supportive. This was truly a community-wide effort.
On the night of the food drive, attendees can get into the Dixie Classic Fair for free by donating 5 non-perishable food items! There is no limit to the number of free tickets you can get. Have two people? Bring 10 items. Three people? 15 items. And so on. Suggested items are canned fruit, rice, dried or canned beans, pasta – anything that is shelf stable. Please avoid bringing items in glass jars.
Volunteers and trucks are located at each gate to collect the food and distribute the tickets. All food collected will stock Crisis Control Ministry’s Winston-Salem and Kernersville food pantries.
