This year's project raised $1 donations for Feed the Children, a program that sends food home to elementary children that normally wouldn't have food to eat on the weekends.
Feed the Children already has 114 students signed up for weekend meals this year and has received a great response from the students and parents.
It costs between $5.50 and $6.00 to feed each child per weekend, which includes four meals and two snacks.
"It's all food that is prepared," Jean Blok, outreach director at Hope Church, said. "They can heat it if it's accessible to, but we don't give them anything they have to mix up."
At the fair, the Sioux Achievers club raised $370 to support the program. They created a poster and a table with more information, and had several club members available to answer questions from fairgoers.
"It's more than we expected to raise," Peggy Halverson, club leader for the Sioux Achievers, said. "Last year we raised between $250 and $300 (for the Upper Des Moines Opportunity food pantry) and our first year we raised about $200 (for Shayla Bee gift bags)."
Though the fair is over, Halverson and the Sioux Achievers are continuing to raise money for the Feed the Children program.
"It would be really cool if we could raise an entire week's worth of money for food," Halverson said.
To feed all 114 children for one week, the club would need to raise about $684.
To donate to the program, checks or cash can be sent or delivered to the 4-H Extension Office, earmarked for Feed the Children. Donations can also be sent to Living Word Church.
