ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX47) — This month’s re-imagined SocialICE event will go a long way in helping to feed local families who could use some extra support.
During the nine-day Improv-ICE event, people were encouraged to visit downtown restaurants. For each meal purchased, one was donated to Chanel One Regional Food Bank.
On Friday, the Rochester Downtown Alliance shared the total from the Buy a Meal, Give a Meal campaign.
About 15,600 meal transactions were made. A donation of about $4,000 will be going to Channel One, using calculations that $1 can buy four meals.
