Good in the ‘Hood is excited to be part of the March MN FoodShare Campaign! March has been identified by food shelf and hunger relief workers as a critical time of year. Donations drop following the winter holidays yet food insecurity and hunger remain persistent. According to Hunger Solutions
Minnesota, over 3,000,000 visits were made to Minnesota food shelves each year from 2011 through 2016 and visits in 2017 are likely to have met or exceeded this number.
The Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign encourages individuals, businesses, community organizations, faith communities, and local advocates to support their local food shelf during the month of March. Individuals and organizations can connect with their local food shelf or register with Minnesota FoodShare as March Campaign partners in collecting food and donations on behalf of their local food shelf or Minnesota FoodShare.
