RLF Food Shelf - MARCH CAMPAIGN
Since 1983, Minnesota FoodShare has coordinated the largest food drive in the state, known as the March Campaign. The March Campaign is an annual effort to increase awareness of hunger in Minnesota and promote donations of food and dollars to local food shelves.
The “Food Fund” dollars are distributed based on March Campaign participation and results and on the number of clients a food shelf serves. Each food shelf reports their March Campaign results and number of clients served to Minnesota FoodShare and those numbers determine the percentage of the available dollars they will receive.
The more a food shelf collects during the March Campaign, the more “Food Fund” dollars it will receive from Minnesota FoodShare.
The Red Lake Falls Food Shelf has participated in this campaign for 14 years and is registered again this year to take part in the Minnesota FoodShare’s March Campaign. If you would like to make a food or cash donation to the Red Lake Falls Food Shelf, you may drop it off at St. Joseph Catholic Church or St. Joseph Parish Activity Center by April 1, 2014.
At this time the RLF Food Shelf could use canned vegetables, canned fruits, fruit juices, soups, oatmeal, jelly/jam, peanut butter, pasta, spaghetti/tomato sauce, mac and cheese, boxed potatoes, hamburger/tuna helper, tuna, ketchup, pudding, jello, baking supplies--flour, sugar, powdered sugar, brown sugar, baking powder/soda, cake mixes, frosting, vegetable oil, paper products--paper towels, toilet paper, and Kleenex.
If a monetary donation is given, the check could be made to the Red Lake Falls Food Shelf.
If you have any questions, please contact the St. Joseph Parish Activity Center 253-2188, Bev Schmitz 253-2681, or Bev Philion 253-2499.
All donations are very much appreciated!
