The Dome is filling up with food covering much of the 8-thousand square feet. Organizers say they're well on their way to surpassing expectations.

So far, 75-thousand dollars has been raised. The students are hoping to raise 110-thousand dollars, or 10-thousand more than last year. They're also hoping to raise 110-tons of food for area food shelves.

“It's crazy. There are people running around, grabbing boxes, and taping things. It'll be a lot of fun.”

If you have food you want to donate, but couldn't get to the Dome today, you can still drop off food tomorrow morning.

You can also give a monetary donation at At 10 tomorrow morning, students and community members will pack up the thousands of pounds of food.
