This is Gateway Chiropractic Center's second annual "Fill the Fridge" food drive event. Volunteers were at Festival Foods in Eau Claire on February 25th to hand out flyers and collect perishable food items.
"Instead of collecting the standard can foods and box foods, we're collecting milk, cheese, butter, meats, hams, things like that," said Dr. Laura Bertram of Gateway Chiropractic Center.
$500 worth of food items and money donations were collected in February 25th's efforts.
Dr. Bertram's goal this year is to get enough food to fill six to eight refrigerators. Last year they were able to get enough food to fill about 5. The drive runs until March 10.
