Good in the ‘Hood 2020 MN FOODSHARE Campaign

You can show kindness and improve lives across your community today!

Let’s restock the shelves & help hurting families.

Nearly 1 in 11 Minnesotans experience food insecurity. And 12.5% of all children are
food insecure. This is even more critical now in response to COVID-19. You can help.

Minnesota FoodShare is the largest grassroots food and fund drive in the state. You can
support this effort by donating cash or food March 1 – April 30.

The easiest and most effective way to restock our food programs is by donating cash.
That’s because each dollar used by Good in the ‘Hood goes further than your own dollar
does in the grocery store.

Donations of food or household goods can be dropped off:

  • Tuesday, April 7, 12:00 – 2:00 at Cedar Valley location, 1630 East 90th Street, Bloomington, MN 55425
  • Wednesday-Thursday, April 8 – 9, 9:00 – 2:00 at our Fridley Warehouse, 8063 Ranchers Rd NE, Fridley, MN 55432

If you wish to donate food or household products, our most needed items are:
Proteins – canned meat (tuna, chicken, salmon), cereals, soups, easy-to-prepare dinner
mixes (Hamburger Helper), mixed nuts, granola bars, single-serving nonperishable items
for children, canned fruit/vegetables, and other shelf-stable items

March MN FoodShare Campaign

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.

Information and registration is available at www.mnfoodshare.org.
