Two Plans To Fight Hunger Competing for $100K Prize
With 100-thousand dollars at stake, a couple dozen community groups in the La Crosse area have started working on plans to halt hunger in the region.
Two proposals have been entered in the 'Food For All' competition, sponsored by the Franke Foundation. Franke director Mel Hoffman is pleased that the ideas submitted do not call for creating any new organizations to deal with hunger. The project's goal is to find ways of supplying food to local people who can't get it now. The 100-thousand dollar prize for the best idea will be awarded next March.
