GREELEY, September 7, 2012 — This year marks the 30th year Weld Food Bank has been working to alleviate hunger in Weld County. In that time, Weld Food Bank has distributed 88 million pounds of food to hungry residents of the county.

There will be performances by Colorado Dance Collective and by RETRO (an 80’s tribute band). Hot dogs, chips, sodas, and snacks will all be available for 30 cents.
