The Minnesota Food Share March Campaign has come to an end. The March that came in like a lamb went out like a lion!! Thanks to the efforts of our local churches, business partners, the Northern Lights Boy Scouts of America and YOU, our friends and neighbors in the greater FM area, we collected 84,970 pounds of food; that is nearly 42 tons of food!! Yes, all of you were truly "Super Heroes!"
WOW!!! The Boy Scouts really know how to "Scout" out the food!! Last weekend they managed to "track" down over 14,000 pounds of food for the hungry in Cass and Clay County!! That is nearly one ton more food than last year!! Thank you to the Northern Lights Council, Boy Scouts of America and ALL of our wonderful neighbors here in the FM area for your help with The Pantry's "NEED TO FEED"
Just a side note,, while the shelves have been refilled by the Boy Scouts, March found us underfunded in monetary donations. If you have a few extra dollars lying around OR know someone who is looking to make a charitable donation or endowment, please contact us at the Emergency Food Pantry.
Annual Meeting and Volunteer Appreciation Dinner
ON Tuesday, March 10, volunteers from the Pantry met at Holy Spirit Catholic Church for a fine meal and short power point presentation by Pat Claus. At the Annual Meeting, members voted for 3 new board members: Wayne Henkel, Terry Yoney and Tim Rohde have become the newest board members of the Emergency Food Pantry. It was a great evening of fun and appreciation of the wonderful people who volunteer so many hours of their time to helping with our "Need to Feed!"
