However, the 2010 SHARE drive will be held the 5th Saturday of the month, October 30th. Churches, youth groups, Girl & Boy Scouts, students, families, and community organizations participate in this community-wide effort to stock local food shelves.
Minnesota FoodShare’s March Campaign is extremely important because it provides the opportunity to receive matching dollars for all donations of food and cash. The Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign provides a proportional match for all food and financial contributions received throughout the month of March.The Feinstein Foundation provides a proportional match for all gifts given in March and April.
The May National Association of Letter Carriers Drive takes place the second Saturday of May and is the largest food drive in the United States. It offers an opportunity to increase food shelf inventories for the summer when donations traditionally decrease.
