Mission

Impact Foundation and Students Today Leaders Forever established a fund for donors to make check and online donations to support the efforts of the largest food drive in North Dakota.
 
Today, this food drive, powered by the Metro Area Student Ambassadors, brings together youth of all ages for a common purpose. Students from the elementary age to the high school all over the Fargo-Moorhead area are joining together for the 8th year to fill the floor of the Fargodome for local food pantries to ensure that needy individuals have a sufficient amount of food.

Background

When we talk about hunger in our community, we’re talking about children going weekends without food, hard working parents without a warm meal, and the elderly rationing what’s in the cupboard to last for an unknown time.
 
For seven years, people of the region have come together to propel our hard work as student organizers in the largest youth-led food drive in the state of North Dakota. Together, we’ve raised over $404,000 and 1,131,843 pounds of food for the Great Plains Food Bank and other local programs that work to end hunger. We stock relief programs across North Dakota and western Minnesota, including both rural and urban communities.
 
Last year 1 in 10 people in our community sought food assistance at emergency feeding programs such as food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters that will benefit from this year’s Fill the Dome event. Unfortunately, 37% were children and a growing 13% were seniors.
 
Again this year, we’re partnering with community leaders who have a vision for a community without hunger and food insecurity. We know you understand that no one should wonder where their next meal is coming from or whether there will be food at all.
 
Fill the Dome Food Drive will be held at the Fargodome on November 24-25. Our goal is to place our one-millionth meal on the floor. Besides gathering food, we’re raising awareness about a quiet problem that too often hides in the darkness as one in ten of our neighbors wonder if they’ll have food tomorrow. 
 
To ensure our fundraising and collection efforts reach those in need, we’ve partnered with the Great Plains Food Bank and the Impact Foundation.
 
Fill the Dome 2014 relies on your participation in achieving our goal of the one-millionth meal in food. You can make the difference to a child, a neighbor, by sharing this opportunity with others and making your own gift. We invite you to join our team in this effort by making a donation on this page and visiting www.fillthedome.org
