Your gift today provides support to children and their families through nourishing meals


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

Prior to March 13th, our weekend food program was operating in 250 Minnesota schools. Food was delivered to these sites approximately monthly with a month supply.

We have since halted our distribution methods for our weekend food program. We are working closely with 31 districts in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin, who are now coordinating all nutrition response and providing food at their designated food distribution points for students and families. These districts include over 87,000 kids on free or reduced lunch, which accounts for 30% of all such students in the state.

We have provided one million meals and are preparing hundreds of thousands more meals to meet the skyrocketing needs.

We will be there for the children through school closures and ongoing disruptions to summer activities. And we will be working long after that to help stabilize families.



We offer many ways for you to volunteer your time to help fight child hunger.
