ZM National Honor Society raises $1,400 for food shelf
By Tawny Michels
ZUMBROTA – Members of the National Honor Society at Zumbrota-Mazeppa High School have been volunteering to raise money for the local food shelf. Students decided to make things more interesting by having a contest with advisors, teachers, and students to see who could raise the most money or food. Whoever won got to shove a pie in the face of another advisor, teacher, or student. The contest spanned two weeks and ended with large amounts of food and $1,400 being raised for the food shelf.
Deb Walstad, director of Zumbrota Area Food Shelf, along with the board members and volunteers, appreciate the response received thus far. The food and money raised by ZM students in March qualify for additional incentives during the Minnesota March FoodShare campaign.
The food shelf is located at 242 Main St. in Zumbrota and is open from 2-4 p.m. on the first and third Mondays of the month, and from 7-8 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. Special hours for seniors only are from 10 a.m. to noon on the third Wednesday of the month. The food shelf serves residents of Zumbrota, Mazeppa, Goodhue, Bellechester, and Wanamingo. You can contact them to verify hours, or to inquire about volunteering at (507) 732-7140 or (507) 732-7330.
