Tater Trot brings in money for CDT

November 11, 2012

BLACKFOOT — Runners and volunteers came together to raise nearly $2,000 for the Community Dinner Table’s Christmas box project on Saturday.
“This will buy a lot of the staple foods,” said CDT treasurer Ronda Cheatham.
Cheatham said that the Christmas boxes will contain enough food for two meals for a family of four.
In addition to its weekly meals on Tuesday, CDT’s next event will be a Thanksgiving meal on Nov. 22. Cheatham said CDT officials anticipate serving 200 meals. She said, “we’ve had just a wonderful response. People want to be a part of this.”
