Fairfield County Fair Junior Leaders completed the weight of their Food Donations on 10/17/2022 on the official Fairfield County Fair scales. We collected 6,726 lbs of canned food and bottled water. We had tremendous support from the community for this project including the Fairfield County Commissioners, the Fairfield County Antique Tractor Club, and the Fairfield County Cattlemen’s Association, just to name a few. Plus, numerous 4-H Clubs and FFA Chapters donated in the Fairfield County Fair Challenge. The Fairfield County Senior Fairboard voted to give back the $500 participation fee in $100 increments to those clubs donating the most food, hoping to assist with end of the year recognitions. Items were donated to 7 different pantries across Fairfield County including: Foundation Dinners, Lancaster Vineyard Church Food Pantry, St. Vincent DePaul, Saint Mark Emerald Food Pantry, Maywood Community Outreach, Lancaster Fairfield Community Action, and the Salvation Army .
