Krewe of Sparta All Krewe Food Drive
February 24 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC+0
This year’s All Krewe Food Drive Challenge weigh-in will be held Sunday, February 24, 2019 from 1-5pm at Manna Food Bank. The 8th Krewe of Sparta Annual Humanitarian Award will be given to the Krewe that raises the most food donations for Manna Food Bank. The award is given out at the Fat Tuesday Priscus Celebration every year.
Double points are awarded for Manna’s most needed items. This year those items are: fruit juice (48oz.), canned fruit in fruit juice, canned chicken, canned tuna, and oatmeal. There will be a separate pallet for double points items. Food will be sorted into three categories when weighing: double points, dry goods, and canned goods. Two representative from each Krewe will be allowed at the scales; all other Krewe members may observe outside the weighing area. Winners & final weights will be announced on Fat Tuesday! Manna asked that we have no flour or sugar and limit bottled water to one case per Krewe.
