Eight boxes of food were hauled out of a truck into the waiting hands of Food Bank volunteers Aug. 25. The donations were collected the previous weekend by Sturgeon County residents John and Jeanne Hudson at their annual movie night.
“This is our third year – always on the same Saturday night,” siad Jeanne Hudson. “It is an open air lawn chair movie night. We invite friends and family.”
Hudson said entry has always been a donation for the food bank. She also runs a concession with burgers, hot dogs, chips, chocolate bars and beverages. The items are bought for a monetary donation which is then used to buy more food.
“We always play two movies,” Hudson said. “Some stay the whole night, others leave, but all have a wonderful time. We could not do this if it wasn’t for the generosity of our friends and family.”
