Food for today. Change for tomorrow.
The Food Group provides hunger relief in Minnesota and western Wisconsin as the economic impact of the pandemic continues to be felt by local families. The need continues at alarmingly high rates.
While we look forward to the promise of brighter days ahead, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will be felt for some time.
Double your impact with matching funds
During November, your donation will be matched by the Manitou Fund! They have offered a $100,000 challenge to double your impact and to reach more homes with urgently needed food.
Your donation will be used for immediate relief in our community. Your support helps The Food Group get more food out to food shelf partners as quickly as possible. As we continue through the uncertainty of the pandemic and the rippling economic effects, we know families, seniors and children are still struggling with food access.
Today, one in nine Minnesotans is hungry, compared to one in eleven in 2019. That means more than 625,000 children, teens, adults and seniors do not know where their next meal is coming from and their long-range outlook for meeting their daily nutrition needs is uncertain. We are currently distributing to a network of more than 265 food shelf and meal program partners reaching 30 counties in MN and Western WI.
The ripple effects of the pandemic impact our BIPOC community disproportionately as well as seniors and kids with increased barriers to food access. In 2020 we added more than 40 new partnerships to distribute food. These new community and BIPOC-led (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) partnerships emerged to reach individuals who have historically been left out of the traditional hunger relief system.
Your compassion for your neighbors speaks volumes as we all experience heightened stress around the COVID-19 pandemic and are faced with the uncertainty of the coming months.
With your help, The Food Group has delivered more than 16 million emergency meals since 2020. Let's keep the momentum going!
$100 provides enough food for a family of four to eat three nutritious meals a day for one month.
Thank you for delivering nutritious, culturally connected foods to our food shelf and meal program partners.
You can make a difference.
With the match, every dollar you contribute provides four meals to 265 local food shelves and meal programs to get urgently needed food to neighbors in the Twin Cities, suburbs, surrounding towns and rural communities.
Your donation goes directly to helping our neighbors.
Please give today to feed our community. Thank you!
