Minnesota Food Shelf Usage Increasing (grade;)this!)
March 15, 2011Posted by on
With Minnesota food shelf usage tripling in the last ten years food shelves are looking for a big turn out for the 2011 Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign.
Minnesota residents are relying on food shelves more then ever. Minnesota food shelf visits increased 25 percent from 2008-2009, the largest increase in 28 years.
The 2011 Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign is one of the most important fundraising drives in recent history. This annual campaign hopes to raise a combined 12 million pounds and dollars from residents of the Central Minnesota area.
There is a couple of ways of helping Minnesota food shelves at the local level. Leading food drives and donating money are effective ways of making a difference combating hunger in your own community.
Do not forget the 2011 FoodShare campaign is just beginning. The drive will collect donations throughout March and end the first week in April.
With over 723,000 Minnesotans hungry, every donation makes a difference.
