VEAP has been providing healthy food and critical resources to individuals and families in the South Hennepin County community for nearly 50 years.
Food pantry visits have now soared to all-time highs across the state. According to our advocacy partners, if Minnesota food shelves were open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, more than ten people would visit a food shelf every minute.
VEAP has been feeling the intense pressures of this increased demand. We’re distributing nearly half a million pounds of food right now, every single month. That equates to over 400,000 individual meals for local families—every 30 days.
Without that assistance, the families who visit us all say the same thing: they would be going hungry, unable to afford groceries.
