Taste of the Holidays is Dec. 7 at Schaefer's Foods

Schaefer's Foods of Nisswa will host its annual Taste of the Holidays from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 7.

Taste of the Holidays participants will sample food and beverage items from every grocery department, including deli, produce, meat, dairy and bakery. A minimum donation of $5 per person is requested, and all donations will be donated to the Lakes Area Food Shelf.

The Lakes Area Food Shelf was started in 1991 at Lutheran Church of the Cross in Nisswa. Outgrowing its space, the Lakes Area Food Shelf built in its present location on the property of Grace United Methodist Church in Pequot Lakes.

The Lakes Area Food Shelf currently services 270 families from Pequot Lakes, Nisswa, Breezy Point, Lake Shore, Lake Hubert and Jenkins. The families can come to shop for food twice a month, receiving enough food for three meals for three days. The food these families receive during the winter is especially important. Families with children want to be able to give their kids something for Christmas so they need extra assistance with food.

Taste of Spirits Holiday Cheer

Spirits of Nisswa will host Taste of Spirits Holiday Cheer in conjunction with Taste of the Holidays, from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 7, at Spirits. There will be over 40 items to sample and prizes will be given away.
