PrintRouse “Business to Business” Food Challenge

For the second year, Rouse will be hosting their “Business to Business” Food Challenge to benefit the BackPack Program at the Warren County School District. Rouse is asking participating businesses in the Warren area to collect canned pastas, soups and fruit cups. Monetary donations are also welcomed. For this competition, $1.00 will equal one pound of food. The top three collecting businesses, determined by the highest weight per employee, will be featured in the Warren Times Observer and receive a plaque to display in their business.  For more information, please contact Amy Trask by calling 814-563-6401 or through email at
