Minnesota FoodShare is a project of Twin Cities faith congregations to stock community food shelves.

 

Since 1983, Minnesota FoodShare has held a March campaign inviting faith communities, businesses, and community organizations to stock the nearly 300 food shelves in Minnesota.

 

In 2017, over $8 million dollars and 4.7 million pounds of food were raised statewide during the March effort. It comes at a crucial time of year, when food donations are low, but the need remains.

 

We invite you to be part of this effort. Options include:

 

  •  Faith community “pack the pews” weekend, with empty grocery bags provided to members to fill.
  •  Workplace food drive contest. Department or employee with the most items wins a prize.
  •  Donations for an employee “jeans day.”
  •  Discount or gift for customers bringing a food or financial donation for STEP.
 
To participate, simply register at mnfoodshare.org/supporter and select STEP under Food Shelf name. We ask that donations be brought to STEP during our regular hours no later than Thursday, April 5. Contact Mari-Claire with any questions at mari@stepslp.org or 952-925-4899 x18.

 

Last year, STEP was recognized as #2 in total donations in the mid-sized food shelf category. With the participation of community groups, workplaces, and faith communities, we can be that top spot in 2018!
