300,000 pounds for the foodshelf

The City of Eagan surpassed its goal of collecting 150,000 pounds of food for the Eagan Resource Center (foodshelf) already in the first 3 months into the year. So Eagan set a new goal to double the orginal amount in celebration of the city's 150th anniversary! More than 60 businesses and organizations and thousands of citizens are helping. This goal meter sits up against the Eagan City Hall building off Pilot Knob Road.

Go Eagan go!

  2. I like the competitive nature of your community. I also like the looks of the building behind it. Probably I should go investigate it...after I have some delectable pastries at a French cafe in the neighborhood.
