JOIN THE MINNESOTA FOODSHARE MARCH CAMPAIGN
The Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign is the only annual statewide food and fund drive of its kind in Minnesota. Between February 26 and April 8, 2018, 300 food shelves around the state come together with congregations, businesses, community groups and others to restock food shelves to help feed our neighbors in need.
Minnesota FoodShare also solicits donations throughout the March Campaign from corporate sponsors, congregations, and individuals for its Food Fund. 100% of the donations to the Food Fund are distributed to food shelves who participate in the March Campaign.
Participating food shelves report cash and food donations throughout March to Minnesota FoodShare. In 2016, the March Campaign raised $8 million and 5.2 million pounds of food, ensuring that thousands of Minnesotans were fed.
At the end of the campaign Minnesota FoodShare distributes the balance in its Food Fund to participating food shelves based on their percentage of the total donations reported to Minnesota FoodShare.
Donations of cash or food can be made directly to:
Pipestone County Food Shelf
223 2nd Street N.W.
Pipestone, MN 56164
ALL LOCAL DONATIONS REMAIN IN PIPESTONE.
