Fight the Hunger, Stock the Trailer Campaign comes to the Fairfield County Fair
All Fairgoers are invited to participate in our Fight the Hunger, Stock the Trailer campaign by bringing non-perishable food items to the Fairfield County Fair. There will be collection boxes at all fair entrance gates for individuals to leave donations. All food collected during fair week will go to local food pantries to support local families and individuals who may be in need. The Fairfield County Junior Fair has set a goal of 10,000 pounds of non-perishable food items to be collected that can help our community. This campaign is in partnership with the Farm Credit Mid-America. Our Junior Fair is competing against other fairs in the region; the Junior Fair that collects the most food, wins a prize.
The Fairfield County Junior Leaders are challenging All 4-H Clubs, FFA Chapters & Scout Troops to participate and bring non-perishable food items to the fair. The Top 5 groups who donate the most food by weight will receive cash prizes for their end of year celebrations. Items for group donations can be brought directly to the livestock trailer housed in the north wing of the round cattle barn, or the grain cart in the Ed Sands Building during the fair. There will be daily weigh ins for groups to get credit. All groups are welcome to start collecting now, and turn in items once the fair opens!!
