March is Minnesota Food Share Month


Mon, Feb 23rd, 2015
Posted in All Health & Wellness

The effects of hunger for an individual or family can range from poor health and slowed recovery from injury or illness to poor performance at school or work. During 2014, Semcac Food Shelves in Rushford, Preston, Caledonia, and Kasson assisted over 1,482 households with supplemental or emergency food.

In March, the annual statewide FoodShare campaign promotes the collection of food and funds to stock the state’s food shelves. As an official participant in the Minnesota FoodShare campaign, Semcac’s Food Shelves will receive a percentage of the undesignated statewide FoodShare funds. The allocation depends on the amount of food and money raised locally during March and on the number of people served during the remainder of the year.

Semcac is asking local service clubs and organizations, businesses, churches, and individuals to help raise food and funds. During March, please bring donated funds, food, and personal care items to your local Food Shelf from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Tuesdays or Thursdays. Donations must be received by March 30 in order for Semcac Food Shelves to receive the incentives from the Minnesota FoodShare campaign. Please write MFS on memo line of your check and indicate which food shelf. Thanks for your support!
