March is Minnesota Food Share Month


Thu, Feb 20th, 2014
Posted in All Business Announcements

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. In 2012, more than 8,500 people per day used a food shelf in Minnesota. During 2013, Semcac Food Shelves in Rushford, Preston, Caledonia, and Kasson assisted over 1,460 households with supplemental or emergency food.

During 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 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays or Thursdays. Donations must be received by March 28 in order for Semcac Food Shelves to receive the incentives from the Minnesota FoodShare campaign. Thanks for your support!
