Minnesota Food Share
Minnesota Food Share is working to restock food shelves across the state for the Minnesota Food Share March Campaign. It’s the largest food and fund drive in the state of Minnesota. They’re hoping to raise more than half the food distributed by 300 food shelves throughout the year.
Minnesota FoodShare says its 30th annual campaign was another record-setter. Minnesota FoodShare raised almost $8.5 million in monetary donations and more than 4.4 million pounds of food in March.
More than 500,000 Minnesotans are getting some kind of help from food shelves. Many of them are working full time, with families, and are just trying to make ends meet.
