Mahnomen FFA Hosting 4th Annual First Responder Appreciation Feed
Mahnomen, MN — The Mahnomen FFA program is hosting their 4th annual Mahnomen County First Responder Appreciation Feed this coming Tuesday, August 17th at the Mahnomen Farmers Market South Shelter. Both a lunch and supper will be served. Mahnomen FFA Advisor Jenna Bendickson says all our welcome, but per usual all of the approximately 150 Mahnomen County First Responders eat for free!
Each year the Mahnomen County FFA uses the funds raised from the First Responders Appreciation Feed to donate back to a local agency such as the Sheriff’s Office or Fire Department. This year they are raising money to purchase needle drops to address a growing problem in the community.
Bendickson hopes they can enough funding to potentially purchase additional Safe Needle Drops in areas outside of Mahnomen as well. The Mahnomen County First Responders Appreciation Feed is Tuesday, August 17th from 11am to 1pm and 5pm to 7pm. First Responders are asked to show their ID or Badge. The cost for non-first responders is $6.
