Northfield Community Action Center has its annual March Minnesota Food Share Campaign. During the month of March, more than 300 food shelves across Minnesota turn to their local communities and talk about hunger and food insecurity within the community and seek donations to augment supplies and run the program. Last year, the CAC raise $104, 439 and collected 39,983 pounds of food during the campaign. 28% of the monetary donations came from 16 area churches.
The CAC has the ability to purchase food items at a much lower cost per pound than the average consumer can, so monetary donations are preferred. Please indicate that your donation is for the FoodShare Campaign. St. John’s 4th and 5th grade Wednesday “DOG” kids will be helping track our congregation’s monetary donations with a display in the Commons. Our goal is to reach $10,000.
If you prefer to donate food items, these are the items most needed: Cooking oil, peanut butter, canned fruit, canned meat, meal helper, pasta, rice, soup, canned beans, dry beans, spaghetti sauce, and healthy snacks.
We are grateful for your support!
