We need your help to fill the food shelf, in Duluth MN
We wanted to take a moment to tell you about the importance of the Minnesota Food Share March Food Drive. This annual event is a statewide effort to help stock food shelves and to support hunger relief organizations throughout Minnesota. For more than 40 years, the March Food Drive has been a critical source of support for individuals and families in need. And we need your help.
The March Food Drive is organized by Minnesota FoodShare, a program of the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches. During this month-long event, individuals, businesses, and organizations are encouraged to donate food, funds, and volunteer hours to their local food shelves. Every dollar donated during the March Food Drive can be turned into three dollars of food.
The need for food has grown significantly over the past few years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people have lost their jobs or had their income reduced, making it difficult to put food on the table. According to Minnesota FoodShare, more than 1 in 10 Minnesotans are experiencing food insecurity, and that number is even higher for children and seniors.
We encourage everyone to get involved in the Minnesota Food Share March Food Drive in whatever way they can. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those who are experiencing food insecurity. Thank you for your support!
