BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji Community Food Shelf will host its fifth annual Fall Clean-Up Day, Tuesday, Oct. 9, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the food shelf.

Pizza will be served following the event. The food shelf is seeking volunteers for this event to work in various areas of the building and weather permitting, outdoors, to clean up the food shelf facility and help put The Farm to bed for the winter.

Children 12 and older are welcome but those younger than 16 must be accompanied by parents. Teams from businesses, churches, organizations and schools are encouraged to participate. Workers should wear close-toed shoes and work clothes.

Volunteers should enter through the warehouse door on the south side of the building and sign-in.

A head count is needed for the pizza, so those who plan to attend should call BCFS at (218) 444-6580 or email bcfsvolunteer@gmail.com by 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5.
