Kearney, Neb. — The Tri-City Food Fight has begun. It’s really not as messy as it sounds. The Food Fight is the annual competition between the Archway in Kearney, The Stuhr Museum in Grand Island and the Hastings Museum to see which organization can collect he most donations for area food pantries.
This year, the Archway is partnering with other Kearney organizations to make donating more convenient for Kearney residents. Food Fight donations are being accepted now through the end of the year at the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce, the Kearney Area Community Foundation, The Kearney Area Children’s Museum, the G.W. Frank Museum, First United Methodist Church, and the Firefighter’s Museum. They are also being accepted at the Kearney Community Theater during the run of their holiday show, Nuncrackers, at the Merryman Center for their performance of the Three Tenors and at Crane River Theater’s performances of Let It Snow at the Merryman Center. Of course, you can also drop off donations during regular hours at the Archway.
The Food Fight ends on December 31 and donations will be distributed to Kearney area food pantries benefit our friends and neighbors in need.
