This year Indiana State Fair attendees will be offered a fun challenge by Indiana’s Family of Farmers (IFoF)while also giving you a chance to help feed the hungry! One in six Hoosiers are at risk of hunger and one in four children do not know where their next meal will come from. You can help and have fun while doing it!
For each fairgoer who finishes the IFoF Recipe Trail, one pound of food will be donated to food banks across Indiana through a partnership between IFoF and Biotrue Challenge Sweepstakes. This year’s goal is 3,500 pounds or 3,500 recipe trail travelers!
Participants collect recipe cards from 10 locations around the fairgrounds and bring them to the IFoF booth at the DuPont Food Pavilion where you will receive a prize for participating and get counted as a donor of a pound of food. There will also be chances for a daily popcorn giveaway and a grand prize of a chest freezer.
Following are the 10 recipe card locations:
- Exposition Hall (Rose Acre Farms, booths 526 & 527 on the southwest side of the building)
- Ball State Ag/Hort Building (World’s Largest Popcorn Ball)
- DuPont Food Pavilion (3 stops: Indiana Wines/Purdue Wine Grape Team, Indiana Dairy, Purdue)
- Habitat for Humanity Ag House
- Indiana Farm Bureau Building
- Glass Barn
- Normandy Barn
- Pathway to Water Quality
Final stop/recipe redemption point: IFoF booth at DuPont food pavilion.
IFoF is also sponsoring the World’s Largest Popcorn Ball, which is something you don’t want to miss! 5,000 pound, 9 foot popcorn ball at the Ball State Ag/Horticulture Building. Don’t worry, the popcorn will not go to waste. After the fair, the popcorn will be fed to Indiana livestock.
You will also want to check out the DuPont Food Pavilion for hourly food demos on the Red Gold Kitchen. There is also a retail store which features more than 30 Indiana made specialty items available for purchase!
