March is Minnesota FoodShare Month
Minnesota FoodShare is run by United Way partner Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches (GMCC). The March campaign is the largest fund and food drive in the state, and helps keep 300 local food shelves stocked throughout the year. Their commitment to increasing access to fresh produce for people in need and raising awareness of the importance of healthy food options, is a goal shared by Greater Twin Cities United Way.
In the metro area, 1 in 5 families struggle with hunger, and healthy options are often out of reach. By working with agencies like GMCC, convening innovative partnerships like the Minnesota Hunger Initiative, and bringing together people like you, people who care, United Way is able to help families in the Twin Cities have a healthier and more hopeful future. Learn more about United Way’s work to help people access basic needs, like healthy food, through our Safety Net strategies.
You can make a difference for our neighbors in need: Our partner agencies need volunteers to help stock shelves, pack donated food and serve meals. Find a volunteer opportunity.
