FARGO, N.D. – Lots of people will be getting meals thanks an annual Fargo event. While COVID-19 presented challenges not seen before in the 14-year history of the “Fill the Dome” food collection event, students came together to overcome many obstacles and collected 56,780 pounds of food and $29,379 during this year’s event.
The totals are enough to provide 135,453 meals to help feed hungry children, seniors and families in the region.
Fill the Dome has now collected more than 2.3 million pounds of food and nearly $690,000 since 2007, which is enough to provide more than 4 million meals. All the food and money collected through Fill the Dome benefits the Great Plains Food Bank.
