Join the Choo Choo Barn and help the community by participating in Canned Food Fridays. The 24th annual food drive returns to the Choo Choo Barn in Strasburg, Penn., on Dec. 7, 14 and 21, 2012 from 10 a.m.–8 p.m. Admission to the Choo Choo Barn’s 1,700-square-foot model train layout is free if you donate one non-perishable food item per person. During Canned Food Fridays, Choo Choo Barn will feature an enhanced holiday display and kids can search for 51 hidden Santas.
Food collected will be donated to the Lampeter United Methodist Church Food Cupboard and the Chester County Food Bank. After exploring the unique model train display, children are invited to visit with Santa Claus at The Shops of Traintown, from 3 p.m.–8 p.m. After their visit with Santa, children will receive a gift from the Choo Choo Barn and a coupon for a free cookie at Isaac’s Restaurant & Deli in Strasburg.
