Since August, volunteers with the  Farm-City Days Committee have combined to work more than 1,500 hours manning concessions booths at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium.

The work serves as a key fundraiser for the committee through Aramark, a program that utilizes non-profit organizations in community events, such as football games.

The project involves taking eight volunteers to each Kansas City Chiefs home football game this season, plus a Taylor Swift concert, to work at Tailgaters, one of the concessions booths inside the stadium. Two other volunteers work at portable serving stations elswhere inside Arrowhead.
