Our participation in the annual Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign has begun! This statewide campaign helps us raise funds for our Little Kitchen FoodShelf by offering a percentage-match based on the pounds of food and monetary donations we collect during the month. This campaign is an important part of the food shelf’s annual operating budget and we depended on YOU to make it a success!
Here are ways YOU can support this campaign:
Shop at the Eastside Food Co-op: Shop at our local Co-op (on 25th and Central Ave. NE) during the month of March, and round up at the register! Every year the Co-op collects up to $5,000 in round-up funds that it gives to Little Kitchen. That buys us five weeks worth of food-bank supplies!
Make a Donation: We always need food (click here for a list) and hygiene donations. Call the church office to arrange for the best time to drop off items. Or, make a cash donation. For every $1 you donate, we can buy up to $10 worth of food from our food banks! You can make an online contribution on the church website by clicking here or send in a check. Mail your check to Little Kitchen, 1500 6th St NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413, or drop off your check (write LKF in the memo line) in the offering plate at the Sunday Morning Worship service.
Thanks to everyone who helped out with the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign! Here are the results:
Money Raised: $23,768.18 (includes a $10,000 matching gift from a generous, anonymous donor form Grace Church and $6,000 raised by the Eastside Food Co-op when customers “rounded up at the register.”)
Pounds of Food Collected: 2,060
The money raised will help erase the Emergency Foodshelf Network (EFN) debt we have had on the books from 2014. (The Little Kitchen Foodshelf purchases basic staples at or below wholesale cost from EFN to supplement food supplies and meet the needs of hungry neighbors.)
In addition to the totals above, the Little Kitchen Foodshelf will receive additional funds through a percentage-match from Minnesota FoodShare to help stock its shelves throughout the year.
