In the Community:

March Food Drive / February 25—April 7

Giving to the Minnesota Food Drive will make your family mindful of families less fortunate. The March Food Drive is a statewide outreach program for those who are down on their luck. The creeping effects of hunger in the life of an individual or family can range from poor health, to slow recovery from illness, poor performance at school or work. All food shelves send their total amount of donations to the Minnesota Food Share March Campaign Headquarters which gets matching funds from the greater Minnesota Council of Churches. Kindness matters; Let’s do good together!
