Watch for Grand Marshal Dan Clark in a horse-drawn carriage. Clark is the founder and executive director of the all-volunteer organization. The Meridian Food Bank, which opened in 1999, offers both a food pantry and a backpack program. More than 50,120 individuals were served in 2016 and the backpack program sent nearly 19,000 food packs home with youth in the West Ada School District.
Thanks to the Meridian Les Schwab for sponsoring the horse drawn carriage Grand Marshal float!
