Past Food Drives

In the final months of 2020, the Anoka and Minneapolis Stakes of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints successfully collected food to provide thousands of meals to people throughout the Twin Cities. 

One year later, the Oakdale and St. Paul Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joined Anoka and Minneapolis Stakes for a food drive in 2022. 

Both years thousands of pounds of food were collected and distributed to provide thousands of meals.
