Channel One Regional Food Bank announces a Winterfest 2018 Challenge to the community- to collect one mile of mac and cheese in one weekend. That goal, which equates to 9,000 boxes, will help sustain the need for the frequently requested product at Channel One’s Supplemental Food shelf throughout the year. Channel One Regional Food Bank joins the many area non-profit agencies that partner with Winterfest XVI to help raise awareness and funds for their organizations.
To achieve this goal, Channel One has partnered with Rochester Hy-Vee stores. On Saturday and Sunday, January 27th and 28th, volunteers will be asking shoppers at all four Rochester Hy-Vee locations to purchase boxes of Mac and Cheese and donate them to Channel One by leaving them in collection bins.

Slots are available for two people at a time from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m at each of the four Rochester Hy-Vee locations. Volunteers must be atleast 16 or accompanied by an adult. Families are welcome to volunteer.
