CLEAR LAKE, Iowa – On a foggy Saturday morning, the Iowa State Patrol teamed up with a North Iowa restaurant to try and help the hungry.

Troopers helped wait and clear tables from 7 to 11 am at 7 Stars Family Restaurant in Clear Lake. 100 percent of the sales during that time were donated to the Hawkeye Harvest Food Bank and the Clear Lake/Ventura Food Pantry. Two waitresses also donated 100 percent of their tips while another two donated 50 percent.

This is the 4th year 7 Stars and the State Patrol have come together for this good cause. Waitress Sandy Rosser says they collected $2,650 in 2017 and beat that with $3,100 on Saturday.
