Food Stand

4-H Food Stand

The Food Stand is annual fundraiser put on and organized by the La Crosse County 4-H Food Stand Committee. The Food Stand is open for service during the La Crosse Interstate Fair in July and the Oktoberfest Races in September at the Fairgrounds in West Salem. All youth and clubs must participate at some point during the year by volunteering for a shift in the Food Stand in order to receive funding and scholarships for activities and events throughout the year by the 4-H Leaders Board. This is a fun and organized fundraiser!
