March is Minnesota Food Share month


Mon, Feb 22nd, 2016
Posted in Rushford 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 2015, Semcac Food Shelves in Rushford, Preston, Caledonia, and Kasson had 8,215 visits from 1,388 households and distributed 378,046 pounds of food. Clients are also provided with information and referral to other community services.

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 for help in raising 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 31 in order for Semcac food shelves to receive the incentives from the Minnesota FoodShare campaign. Please write MFS on memo line of your check. Thanks for your support!
