Friends of Friends Fighting Hunger in Otter Tail County Chairperson, Arne Gudmestad, gives a donation check to Perham Community Food Shelf Director John Leikness. Leikness said the $6,650 donation would allow the food shelf to buy three times that amount in food, thanks to its 3-to-1 buying relationship with the North Country Food Bank. The food shelf also purchases some food from local grocers, who offer steep discounts for the cause.
