MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Thousands of people gathered in Bloomington on Thanksgiving morning to help fight hunger in Minnesota.

The 9th Annual “Walk to End Hunger” was held at Mall of America.

The walk raises money to help give meals to families that need them.

About 5,000 people showed up for a 5K walk around the mall, including Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who says she is thankful that so many Minnesotans wanted to help.

“It’s an incredible outpouring of support,” Klobuchar said. “We’ve been through a divisive election season, and this is a moment where everyone can come together no matter who you voted for, what you think, this is the moment where everyone can say, ‘You know what, there’s things that are bigger than ourselves, there’s a reason to get up in the morning and get out of bed on Thanksgiving.'”

Sen. Klobuchar says about one out of seven Minnesota families use food shelves.

Thursday’s walk raised about $300,000 for hunger-relief agencies in the Twin Cities.

  1. Minnesota citizens go hungry … to support Amy importing over 10,000 non-white, illiterate, non-English speaking, unskilled, unemployable, malcontents to the Twin Cities each year on the basis of their non-white race, religion, ethnicity, and country of origin using the guise of refugee or asiliee: They are immediately placed on multi-generational welfare and are entitled to free healthcare, free housing, EBT cards, cash payments, interpreters, childcare, legal aid, schools, and social services, as well as entitlement to preferential hiring, training and promotion.
    Anyone except Minnesota citizens, who can point to Minnesota on a map deserves all the above benefits including a drivers license with No-ID required. Just like voting. All are welcome here in the Socialist Welfare Village. Thanks Amy. Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Rereading the story only one out of seven Minnesota families need to use food shelves. That is shocking. We need to embrace our open borders Sanctuary City policies and import enough freeloaders to bring that up to one out of two. That is Socialist Welfare Village equality, and is the right thing to do. Those six taxpayers not as yet in the soup lines can afford it.

  3. Please remember, that the $300,000 collected almost covers the first year’s cost for importing just three of our new foreign national best friends. Give till it hurts. They deserve your tax dollars.
