Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat

HOLMEN, WI- Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat is a community-wide food drive that takes place in Holmen on Halloween Night 2019 between 5:30-7:30pm. Over 200 volunteers go door-to-door collecting non-perishable items in 55 Holmen School District neighborhoods. Items collected are taken to Holmen Lutheran Church for sorting and distribution to local families in need of assistance.

Begun in 2001, this annual community-wide tradition involves students and teachers from the Holmen School District, local churches and business, individual supporters– and the many households throughout Holmen who have come to enjoy this as an
important addition to the usual trick-or-treat festivities by donating food or collecting and sorting donations on Halloween night. In 2018, over 11,500 food and personal care items were collected in one night; 90 Holmen area families were assisted in the distribution event that followed. Area food pantries received distributions, too.

How can the community help? Prepare a bag of non-perishable food items to donate, have it ready for volunteers to pick up on Halloween night. Donations can also be dropped off any time at the Holmen Festival or Dollar Tree stores. Monetary
donations will also be accepted.
