I haven't heard of any of the food banks on the sign up page..... Are any of them in the Wausau area?


I wish there were a few local food pantrys in our area that would be on the list.
I couldnt find any local to the Wis Rapids/ ST Point area so I selected "Central Wi CAC Adams food pantry". You could choose any one you want. If I didnt choose the 1 I did I would have chosen the "Salvation Army Food Pantry" Sorry I can not be more of a help with this question.

Since the Princeton Club is organizing this, and they are based in Madison with two clubs there and only one other club in the state (New Berlin), I would assume that the lack of local food pantries listed for the other parts of the state is because of where the Princeton Clubs are located. You can choose an organization such as Second Harvest or others that are not so regional, or just choose a group that appeals to you.

Becky, I did not see the Central WI CAC listing for Adams County when I signed up, so I tried to change it. This can be done, but I had to send an email to the guy in charge (this question is asked and answered on the web site). It appears to be no problem now, but once pounds of food are being earned for a group, it's harder to switch. I'll let you know how my attempt is handled.


Thanks Pat.

I just received am email from the Princeton Club about food donated by weight loss vs exercise. Each person participating gets to choose whether they want to commit to exercise or weight loss. Food will be donated which ever way they decide to go. So if you would like to exercise then weight loss by all means go ahead. If you are on a team it will help either way. I hope this clears up how food is donated.


Thanks for checking this!

Well the 1st weigh in of the year was this past week. As of today 1/11/2012 we as a team have donated 136# of food so far!!!!!! That is 13.6# lost this past week. Of course this does not reflect any team members who have not "checked in" with their weigh in yet this week. I will try to post on Saturdays keeping you all informed about how we are doing.

Total #'s of food pledged=2960
Total #'s of food donated this week= 136
Total #'s of food donated todate= 136
Weight lost this week (all team members checking in)= 13.6#
Weight lost todate (all team members checking in)= 13.6#

We are off to a GREAT start.
THANKS SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!

Becky

Maybe it was sent to your spam folder?
That is where mine was sent last year.

That is GREAT news! A loss is a loss no matter if it is water weight or just plain fat.
