The Muskingum County Fair is still two weeks away, but Christ's Table is already preparing for one day in particular.
Kroger has stepped forward to sponsor a day at the fair which supports Christ's Table. You can bring two cans of Kroger brand fruit, or vegetables to donate to the organization and get free fair admission for the day. Executive Director of Christ's table, Keely Warden said events such as these help them out quite a bit during this time of the year.
"We really need it, our shelves are bare, our number are up, we serve 10,000 meals every month of the summer, so we're excited! We need it right now and we hope that the community will come out and support!"
This is the second year for the event, and last year they collected close to 5,000 canned goods. Warden said they hope to top that amount this year. She said they are encouraging the community to make those shopping lists early and enjoy the traditional event that Muskingum County has to offer.
"Make out your shopping lists early, get out there and do some shopping, buy some Kroger items, and come enjoy the fair!"
The event will be held Wednesday, August 13 from 7AM to 1PM. You are encouraged to come out and support Christ's Table and their work for the community.
