Food for Thought gets a Covid redo
January 8, 2021
The eighth annual Food for Thought fundraising event from the Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College has been reimagined this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
A kick-off event, the popular Wall of Wine, will take place Jan. 15 until sold out at Cold One Liquors during business hours. Cold One is donating 100 bottles of wine and each bottle will be accompanied by a gift certificate donated by a local business and valued from $10 to $100.
Because of pandemic restrictions, the tasting event is a no-go this year and instead organizers are offering a $25 food vendor card that can be used for deals throughout 2021. The 12 vendors are Bearaboo Coffee, Carmen's, Common Ground, Family Tradition, Jim-n-Jo's, Magnolia Cafe, Mama's Best Baklava, Papa Murphy's, Room at the Table, StreetCar, Trapper Pete's, and the Warming House.
A raffle drawing will be held at noon Feb. 1 in the commons area at FDLTCC. The event will be live and can be viewed in person or on the Food for Thought Facebook page. Tickets are available at area businesses, the college campus, and event board members. There are a variety of prizes, including a $1,000 travel voucher, art offerings, gift cards, a 50-inch TV and a B&B meat bundle.
