During October, the Fifty Lakes Municipal Bar is sponsoring the Emily Emergency Food Shelf in its competition with other greater Minnesota municipalities. The sponsors who collect the most money and donated foods will total up what they have collected and will give all donations and food products to the Emily Food Shelf.
Whichever municipal collects the most food products and monetary donations will be presented with $1,000 for the food shelf it is sponsoring.
The Emily Food Shelf provides food to those in need from the Emily, Outing, Fifty Lakes, Little Pine, Ross Lake, Fairfield and Perry Lake area. Monetary or food donations may be left at the Fifty Lakes Municipal Bar, or checks made out to the Emily Food Shelf may be left at the Pine River State Bank in Emily or mailed to 42145 Birchwood Drive, Emily, MN 56447.
