The Archway in Kearney scored a big win and raised almost two tons of food on their own, winning the annual Tri-City Food Fight agains the Hastings Museum and Stuhr Museum in Grand Island. The final totals are:
Archway - 5,417 pounds
Stuhr Museum - 3,792
Hastings Museum - 3,497
Overall, the three museums raised over 11,000 pounds of food, a wonderful amount for this more than 10 year old competition. The Archway rocketed to the top during their first weigh of almost 4,000 pounds, a mark Hastings and Stuhr could not keep up with.
The Tri-City Food Fight is an annual food drive during the holiday season where three institutions compete to see who can raise the most food for their community. Last year, the Hastings Museum won the title and this year, the Archway came away with bragging rights. All food donated to the museums were donated directly to local food pantries, which are utilized heavily during the holiday season.
Stuhr would like to thank everyone who donated and organized drives in their places of business, including Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices Da-Ly Realty.
