Annual event raises funds for Newark Food Cupboard

July is National Ice Cream Month, and Sunday, July 16 is a National Ice Cream Day Celebration, so you know how the folks at Woodside Farm and Creamery celebrate – with an ice cream eating contest, of course, from 12 to 4:30 p.m.

The day is also a chance to try Woodside’s new ice cream flavors and vote for your favorite, take a behind the scenes tour, and play a few field games, all culminating in the annual ice cream chow down at 3:45 p.m..

General admission to the event is free; however, there is a $3 to $5 registration fee for the ice cream eating contest, with all the proceeds being donated to the Delaware Food Bank.

The Food Bank will be on hand to accept non-perishable food items, and will also be providing some yummy grilled refreshments.

Woodside is located at 1310 Little Baltimore Road in Hockessin.
