The 12th annual Fill the Dome event, held today and Monday at the Fargodome, brought in 193,201 pounds of food to help those in need this year. The total is enough to provide more than 161,000 meals for hungry children, seniors and families across North Dakota and western Minnesota. 

Monetary donations for the event, which have totaled around $50,000 in past years, are continuing to be counted and a total will be known at a later time. 

Fill the Dome has now collected nearly 2.5 million pounds of food and over $553,000 to help in the fight to end hunger since 2007
