In the fight against hunger, we all need to come together to make a difference. That’s why this year, Greater Twin Cities United Way hosted an employee-led food drive to support the efforts of Minnesota FoodShare’s March Campaign.
We exceeded our goals and were able to donate the equivalent of 695 meals to two of our partner agencies: 280 pounds of food and $175 to Pillsbury United Communities Brian Coyle Center in Minneapolis, and 206 pounds of food and $175 to Merrick Community Services in St. Paul.
We are pleased with our results and the dedication of our employees to our mission, but always remember that each day in Minnesota 1 in 10 people struggle to find enough to eat and nearly 9,000 people visit a food shelf to meet their nutritional needs. That’s why we’re proud to support Minnesota FoodShare’s March Campaign. Now in its 35th year, this annual grassroots food and fund drive provides more than half the food distributed by 300 food shelves across the state.
Together we are powerful. Together we are humankind.
