The COVID-19 virus is significantly disrupting all aspects of our community, especially for our children. With schools remaining closed through the remainder of the school year, hundreds of thousands of children are living with increased food insecurity.
Our network is responding! We’ve provided one million meals to children and families in the community. Our food bags are being distributed across 31 school districts in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin on a weekly basis. We are preparing hundreds of thousands more meals to meet the skyrocketing needs. And we will be working long after that to help stabilize families.

We are extremely appreciative of the response from the community to volunteer. To limit exposure to the public and maintain the health and safety of volunteers and staff, we are working with a smaller group of return volunteers. Events are cancelled for the remainder of the school year. We will post the volunteer events calendar for the 2020-2021 school year in July. Check here for updates.
