KING CITY — A total of 575 meals were served during the annual Polenta and Stew Feed to help raise funds for the Salinas Valley Fair Heritage Foundation.

Heritage Foundation board members volunteered to run the Dec. 4 event, while members from King City Rural 4-H ran the bake sale portion and King City Fire Department set up the Santa photo area.

The cooks in the kitchen included the trio Steve Tankersley, Aaron Vanoli and Mitch Moss, who were back serving up polenta after having volunteered as cooks for many years.

Meanwhile, community members drove through the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds parking lot for curbside contactless pickup of their meals. The event also included a toy drive to benefit Operation Give Back.
