Eau Claire (WQOW) – An Eau Claire radio personality is camping outside Northern Tap House for the next few days to help fill starving stomachs this holiday season.
Scorch, host of The Morning X on Eau Claire’s 92.9, is determined to fill an 18-wheeler with non-perishable food items for Feed My People Food Bank. His goal: to gather 20 tons of food and other items like toilet paper, tooth brushes and feminine products.
“Everything stays local,” said Scorch. “That’s one very important issue you’ve got to remember. All the donations here are going to, perhaps your friends, your family, your relatives, that aren’t as fortunate as you are.”
Scorch has taken his charitable events to the extreme in the past, locking himself in a dog kennel to raise money for animals in need.

“I can use my position, and it sounds really tacky to say, but it is, I’m in the public eye,” said Scorch. “I can use that position to bring to the forefront, the plight of people that don’t have the things that other people do.”
Scorch said he’s doing “Marathon for Meals” for the people who are less fortunate.
“We look in our cabinets we grab our dinner. We grab some food. We go on our way. We brush our teeth. We use our own bathrooms, our own toilet paper. You know what? Some people don’t have that luxury. So, I do these events for the animals and for the humans, to give them that chance.”
Scorch will be outside Northern Tap House in Eau Claire until early next week. You can stop by to drop off donations any time. Monetary donations are accepted.
