The Butte-Silver Bow Clerk and Recorder's Office will be on hand as well as Chancellor Don Blackketter.
A "Shred and Feed" event taking place in cities around the state including Butte and Bozeman. The event aims to raise awareness of two issues organizers say are facing our state: hunger and fraud.
