As an example, one group held a Super Bowl competition among the Fairfield Elementary Schools with the winning school receiving a visit from our high school football team to interact, tutor, and promote good behavior and academics.

Our Most Recent Donations & Food Drives
A partnership formed with the Fairfield High School National Honor Society, Fairfield Food Pantry, Shared Harvest and the Fairfield High School Food Closet, will ensure the school’s shelves are full to assist students in need. The Food Closet was started by senior Madi Dunn, a member of the National Honor Society, out of concern for classmates who were coming to school hungry. Food Pantry Trustee and founder Howard Dirksen, using his experience working with other food pantries, met with Madi, Principal William Rice, and Tina Osso of Shared Harvest to work out a viable plan to help. As a result of that meeting, the food pantry will now be the 501(c)3 supplier of boxes of food from Shared Harvest to the school. Fundraisers and donations received by the National Honor Society will be used to purchase goods for this project as well. “It is felt that this will be a win-win venture for both the Fairfield Food Pantry and the Fairfield High School Food Closet beginning this school year and for years to come,” said pantry Trustee Judy Dirksen.

Bryce Fletcher, a 3rd grader at John Paul II, collected canned goods in his neighborhood for his Lenten Project and donated them to Fairfield Food Panty. He passed out fliers the weekend before and the response was overwhelming, collecting 181 lbs of food in his wagon and delivered in the pickup truck to the pantry. He likened it to Easter and the excitement he felt every time he found the donated food on the porches. Good job, Bryce!
Jeff Zugelter, Chaplain of the Elks Lodge #93 presented a check in the amount of $750 to Becca Desai, Fairfield Food. Pantry Trustee. The donation was given to help purchase food for our Holiday/Christmas Bags presented in December, 2017. Along with Zugelter, Ed and Lindy Stasen, Brian Brennan, Art Nash and Kathy and Mike Scholl volunteered their time to help with the distribution of the Christmas/Holiday Bags.
Linda Yarger, President of Fairfield Community Foundation, presented a check to the Fairfield Food Pantry in the amount of $1,000 in the Fall of 2018.
