The largest food drive in Minnesota takes place in March!
March is designated as Minnesota FoodShare, a campaign by the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches. For more than 30 years, this nonprofit has organized fundraising efforts involving families, companies, faith communities, schools and civic groups to collect food and monetary donations.
In 2014, Minnesota FoodShare partnered with almost 300 foods shelves statewide to raise more than $8 million and more than 4 million pounds of food during the month of March.
When you’re talking about food, you can’t escape the numbers: 10 percent of Minnesotans don’t know where their next meal will come from. A third of those are children.
During the month of March, Social Ministries will provide a grocery cart in the Narthex for your food donations. There are also envelopes attached to the cart for monetary donations for the offering basket.
Please be a part of this annual food & fund drive to help feed our Minnesota neighbors in need!
