Campaign to Fight Hunger

Posted on March 12, 2010 by

We’ve selected Minnesota Food Share for our Charity of the Month. Each March they hold the largest food and fund drive in the state of Minnesota, and during that month the donations stay in our local community. Our local church, Hope Lutheran, is supporting this campaign, and so we wanted to add our support.

Here’s some comments from Hope’s March Newsletter:

What is the March Campaign?

This is the largest food and fund drive in the state of Minnesota. It is sponsored by Minnesota Food Share and accounts for more than half the food distributed through food shelves each year. March is the month that Minnesota Food Share and others provide lots of media coverage to bring attention to the problem of hunger in our state. We also become eligible for extra dollars that we can earn for our local food shelf.

Does the Jordan Area Food Shelf benefit?

Yes – 100% of all donations – food and money – given during March will stay in Jordan.

What can you do?

Any idea you have. Everything you need is on the mnfoodshare.org website or contact Deb at the Jordan Area Food Shelf at 952-201-8372.

Thanks for you help to fight hunger!

With the inspiration of  “any idea you have” we decided to make this our Charity of the Month. Hope you agree that it is a good cause.
