Channel One has a “lengthy” goal in mind – to collect a mile of Mac & Cheese! You can help with the ‘Mile of Mac & Cheese’ filling the shelves at Channel One Food Shelves event.

Channel One Regional Food Bank, along with Hy-Vee and Noodles & Company, will be hosting special collection events at all four Rochester Hy-Vee Stores and both Rochester Noodles & Company locations!

On January 28, bring 5 boxes of macaroni and cheese to either Rochester Noodles & Company Restaurant and receive a FREE bowl of Noodles & Company Mac & Cheese!

On Saturday & Sunday, January 30 & 31, stop by any of the four Rochester Hy-Vee locations and purchase macaroni & cheese to fill the special collection boxes at each location.

All of the boxes of macaroni will be donated to Channel One for our Mile of Mac & Cheese. Their goal of a Mile of Mac & Cheese will help fill the Channel One Food Shelf with approximately 9,000 boxes of Mac & Cheese. Thank you for helping feed your neighbors in need!
