In the days following George Floyd’s death, people from across the Twin Cities came to the area with cars full of supplies, groceries, and essentials. Many arrived at the Baha’i Center of Minneapolis, which is situated immediately outside the north barricade to George Floyd Square. The Baha’i Center turned to Organic Oneness for support. In keeping with Organic Oneness’ mission to co-create with the community, we worked with neighborhood associations and organizers to decide how we could best serve.
From those initial conversations, we created a sustainable food pantry to distribute the donations we received to families within a two to three block radius. This food pantry was viewed as essential to serving pre-existing food insecurity among neighborhood families, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the grocery stores lost by the unrest in late May 2020. The food pantry is open two afternoons per week and serves approximately 50 neighborhood families weekly. Since mid-July, we've served more than 800 individuals. All of the goods we offer are free of charge. We continue to engage in daily conversation with neighborhood organizers and associations so we can continue to serve the community.
Thanks to donors such as you, we can continue providing this crucial service. To learn more about us, check out our Facebook page.
