Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign brings together various organizations to help keep 300 food shelves statewide stocked throughout the year. We envision a Minnesota where all residents have access to healthy food and no one suffers from hunger. The March Campaign addresses those issues directly and St. Stephen's contributed 1,139 pounds of food in March 2016. This year's challenge will be to contribute 1,500 pounds!
Week 1 - February 26 - Breakfast Items
Week 2 - March 5 - Lunch Items
Week 3 - March 12 - Dinner Items
Week 4 - March 19 - Personal Care Items and Laundry Detergent
Week 5 - March 26 - Pack The Pews!
Pack the Pews is a featured weekend within the March Campaign for places of worship to raise food and funds for local food shelves. It is an opportunity to come together as people of faith in the fight to end hunger.
