Dear Editor: 

Calling all hunger heros! Family Pathways invites everyone to join in the fight to end hunger. Family Pathways’ Food Shelves are preparing for the annual Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign. This effort restocks food shelves and helps meet the hunger needs of families in crisis in the communities we serve throughout East Central Minnesota. Donations drop following the winter holidays yet food insecurity and hunger remain persistent. The Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign encourages individuals, businesses, community organizations, faith communities, and local advocates to support their local food shelf during the month of March. Individuals and organizations can connect with their local food shelf or register for a food drive with Family Pathways as March Campaign partners in collecting food and donations on behalf of their local food shelf.

 

Unable to organize a food or fund drive, but still interested in making a difference? Donations may be made directly to your local food shelf at FamilyPathways.org. Cash donations make the greatest impact to food shelves, allowing us to purchase according to the communities’ needs and stretching your $1 into more than $4 worth of food shelf items. Your donations made in the month of March are also matched in-part by the Minnesota FoodShare Campaign.

 

Local food shelves cannot continue without local support in each community. Please consider being a local hero to help fight hunger. Together, we keep neighbors from going hungry.

 

Thank you. Your generosity is saving lives.

 

Kathy Wills, Director of Hunger Relief
