Donate to the State Fair Food Drive

Kids, we all have that pang every now and then to lend a helping hand.  I know a lot of us here in the Sedalia area contribute to charities and church and school groups.  I get a lot of community calendar events submitted to me that are just that; people trying to help.  So, here’s another way for you to help, and maybe get a little reward for it yourself.

The Fair’s second annual food drive is underway.  Now through August 13, a $1 off gate admission coupon will be given for each canned food item brought into a participating Missouri Ford dealership.  The coupons will be redeemable for up to half-off the cost of Fair admission Tuesday, Aug. 14.

Canned food items will also be accepted for $1 off admission coupons from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Fair’s Centennial Gate on August 14.  On Missouri Farmers Care Food Drive Tuesday, a maximum of $4 savings is being offered on an adult gate admission ticket, $3 savings on a senior gate admission ticket and $1 savings on a child’s.  This is equivalent to half off of each ticket value.  More information is available online at

So do what you can, go through that old pantry and pull out some stuff you don’t need.  If you find a moment when you’re at the store, pick up a few extra items just to throw in for the food drive.  Every little bit helps, and every little bit is important.

And, hey, it’s not like you’re not going to go to the Fair.  You might as well get a little discount for it!
