It’s the last day of the “KMCH, Bring Me My Lunch” contest!
Each weekday September 28th through October 16th, we called a local farmer on their cell phone around 9:30 am – and if they answered their phone by saying, “KMCH, Bring Me My Lunch”, then that’s exactly what we did! We delivered them lunch for four from one of the local restaurants. We were happy to still be able to provide a little normalcy during this crazy year by keeping this contest going in 2020!
Congratulations to Mike Wendt, who farms between Delaware and Delhi – he was our winner of the “KMCH, Bring Me My Lunch” contest on Friday, October 16th (on our 3rd try today)! KMCH’s Janelle Tucker delivered Mike lunch for four from Widner’s Ice Cream Parlor in Manchester, along with some goodies from the contest’s sponsor, Simon’s Grain & Feed, as well as the Delaware County Pork Producers. Thank you to Simon’s and the Pork Producers, as well as all the local restaurants who donated lunch – Riverbend Pub & Grill in Manchester, Brew & Brew in Dyersville, Manchester Dairy Queen, Olive That Deli in Manchester, Dyersville Happy Joe’s, Aunt Emmy’s in Manchester, Delhi Landing, The Bread Basket in Manchester, Cooper’s Place in Ryan, the Manchester Pizza Ranch, Quik ‘N Handi in Manchester and Hart Ridge in Manchester.
Thank you to all 121 area farmers who entered this year – that’s the second highest number of entries since the contest began many years ago! Please enter again next year when the “KMCH, Bring Me My Lunch” contest returns in the fall of 2021. We wish you all a safe and prosperous harvest season and thank you for all you do!
