United Way – Flavor of the North
United Way of Northeastern MN’s 8th annual Flavor of the North provides Northland restaurants and food businesses will prepare their best menu item and demonstrate their finest in food, atmosphere and customer service to event guests. Throughout the evening, attendees will vote for their favorite food in three categories: “Best Appetizer”, “Best Entrée” and “Best Dessert” – by secret ballot. The event will conclude with the announcement of the “Best of the Best” award, determined by the most ballots received by a participating restaurant.
All event proceeds will directly impact children and will support United Way of Northeastern Minnesota’s “Buddy Backpack Program” which provides supplemental backpacks full of nutritious, child-friendly food to at-risk children each Friday or weekend break they head home from school. Currently, 679 children throughout Minnesota’s Iron Range schools are benefiting from this program, receiving meals each Friday.
