“We at the Pequot Lakes Dairy Queen realize what an important part the Lakes Area Food shelf plays in our community," said Lisa Kaneski of Pequot Lakes Dairy Queen. "We know there is a stronger need for their help today more than ever. This is why we are holding a fundraiser on Friday, April 8, On that day we will be giving 20% of our sales as a donation to the Lakes Area Food Shelf. We will also be asking for additional donations if customers are wanting to give more to this cause.”

Lakes Area Food Shelf is in the midst of its annual March FoodShare Campaign, sponsored by the MN Council of Churches. The goal is to raise as much financial support and food donations as possible. This sponsorship from the Pequot Lakes Dairy Queen is one way to support Lakes Area Food Shelf and the thousands of friends and neighbors they serve each year.
