OUR MISSION

Fighting Child Hunger

More than 200,000 children in Minnesota live with food insecurity. Without reliable access to food – such as free and reduced meal programs at school – the risk of hunger is very real. The Sheridan Story works to fight hunger in our community by filling the gaps to food access that children face during weekends, summers and extended breaks

Coronavirus Response

On March 13, we transitioned our weekend food program to adapt to school closures and disruptions caused by COVID-19. Instead of delivering food to 250 Minnesota schools for direct distribution into children’s backpacks, we worked together with 31 districts in Minnesota and western Wisconsin and other community partners to provide food at designated food distribution points for children and families. In order to meet the skyrocketing needs, we increased food output by 400%, delivering 100,000 meals a week to over 37% of all K-12 children in Minnesota.

Thanks to community support, we are able to continue to provide 100,000 a week to 140+ school and community locations throughout the summer.

We have since provided over 1,460,000 meals and are preparing hundreds of thousands of more meals to continue meeting the rising needs.

We will be there for children through the ongoing disruptions caused by COVID-19, and we will be there long after to help stabilize families
