ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
During the holidays, we experience amazing generosity as local groups, businesses, and families donate thousands of pounds of food to ensure we can provide healthy food and personal necessities for people who are struggling. While this is wonderful, PRISM relies on donations like this throughout the year to continuously meet the needs of the 700+ families who visit us each month.
The Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches (GMCC) MN FoodShare March Campaign is an annual tradition that raises awareness and donations for PRISM and other food shelves so we can offer food and personal care items year-round. This year, cash and food/hygiene items donated to PRISM from February 24 through March 31 will count toward our goal of 65,000 lbs. and $65,000. GMCC will reward us with a grant based on the pounds and dollars we receive.
4 WAYS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
1. Donate money.
“Don’t put a gallon of milk in your school’s collection bin, please donate funds instead.”
Through Food Banks like Second Harvest and The Food Group, we purchase milk, cheese, meats and other perishable necessities at a greatly reduced rate, stretching your dollar and enabling us to provide nutritious items that you feed your own family.
