The 2016 Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign is gearing up! This statewide campaign sponsored by the Greater Minnesota Council of Churches helps food shelves make it through the slow summer months by providing them with matching grants for food and funds raised in March. Stay tuned for information on how you can help!
The 24th Annual Marketplace Stuff-a-Truck Food and Fund Drive runs from November 2 to November 26. Starting this year, we are challenging area businesses to step up and compete with the schools for food and funds raised. In 2014 we received 23,642 pounds of food and $5,372 in donations. This year our goal is 25,000 pounds of food and $6,000. Boxes are in area schools and the truck will be at Marketplace Foods November 20 & 21. Food and monetary donations can also be dropped off at the Food Shelf, 1260 Exchange Ave. SE, on M, W, or F from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Please help us to reach this goal and help put food on tables this fall and winter!
