March Special Offering: CAC Food Shelf

March Special Offering:  CAC Food Shelf.  Northfield Community Action Center (CAC)  is in the midst of its annual March Minnesota Food Share Campaign. During the month of March, more than 300 food shelves across Minnesota seek donations to augment supplies and run the program. All local donations are dispersed by the CAC into the Northfield food programs such as the Food Shelf, Thursday’s Table, Backpack Weekend Food, Summer Lunch Programs, Grocery Vouchers, and others.  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 You may use the St. John’s special offering envelope for the CAC Food Shelf.  Please write your check to St. John’s, and indicate CAC Food Shelf on the memo line, and put in the offering plate or bring to the office.  Our goal is to reach at least $10,000.  Last year $13, 188 was donated!

If you prefer to donate food items, these are the items most needed: peanut butter, canned fruit, tuna or canned meat, pasta, rice, soup, baked beans, spaghetti sauce, canned vegetables, baby food, granola or fruit bars.   We are grateful for your support!
