Fill the Fridge: Everything you need to know

Once again, 41 Action News is partnering with Harvesters to hold our city-wide food drive for perishables. Fill the Fridge is back!

From Sept. 2-6, we'll collect food nearly-impossible to donate otherwise.

We'll be at five Price Chopper locations throughout the week, a different one each day.

Together we can help feed the hungry in Kansas City.

So SAVE THE DATE!

Here's where we'll be and when, so you can get it on your calendars:

Tuesday, Sept. 2 500 NE Barry Road, Kansas City, Mo., 64155
Wednesday, Sept. 3 7201 W. 151st Street, Overland Park, Kan., 66223
Thursday, Sept. 4 1100 South 7 Highway, Blue Springs, Mo., 64015
Friday, Sept. 5 19601 W. 101st Street, Lenexa, Kan., 66220
Saturday, Sept. 6 1030 W. 103rd Street, Kansas City, Mo., 64114

The majority of those served by Harvesters and its network of pantries are families with children -- children who may consider it a treat to have milk, or cheese or yogurt.

It's important to note: You have to buy your donations at the Price Chopper location where we are each day, because we must prove the food was never mishandled or allowed to reach an unsafe temperature.

Look for more details at kshb.com/FilltheFridge and on 41 Action News.

Thanks to all who made this such a successful event last year, and to all of you who encouraged us to keep filling the fridge!
