Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign

This is the BIGGIE!  Donations from this campaign take us through the summer months when usage is at its highest and donations are at their lowest.  We accept food and monetary donations Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at our building at 1260 Exchange Ave. SE in the Industrial Park. We are a block east of the Eagles Club. You may also donate using the Paypal or GiveMN links on this website.  Mailed donations should go to: BCFS, P.O. Box 3118, Bemidji, MN 56619-3118. If you are interested in participating in the Pack the Pews event March 19-25, please call Mary at 444-6580 for more information.
