State fairgoers can help feed hungry

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana’s Family of Farmers (IFoF) will again offer a fun challenge for Indiana State Fair attendees this year, while also giving them a chance to help feed the hungry.

For each fairgoer who finishes the IFoF Recipe Trail, one pound of food is donated to food banks across the state through a partnership between IFoF and Feeding Indiana’s Hungry.

Participants collect recipe cards from the 10 locations around the fairgrounds and bring them to the IFoF booth at the DuPont Food Pavilion where they will receive a prize for participating and get counted as a donor of a pound of food. The booth also features a chance to register for a daily popcorn giveaway and the grand prize of a chest freezer.

Following are the 10 recipe card locations: Exposition Hall (Rose Acre Farms, booths 526 & 527 on the southwest side of the building); Ball State Ag/Hort Building (World’s Largest Popcorn Ball); DuPont Food Pavilion (3 stops: Indiana Wines/Purdue Wine Grape Team, Indiana Dairy, Purdue); Habitat for Humanity Ag House; Indiana Farm Bureau Building; Glass Barn; Normandy Barn; Pathway to Water Quality; and IFoF booth at DuPont food pavilion
