Thank you to all who volunteered, made a financial donation and helped create awareness during Hunger Action Month!

The month was amazing in many ways—Governor Dayton proclaimed September as Hunger Action Month in Minnesota, Minneapolis bridges and buildings turned orange on September 3, huge canned sculptures appeared at Mall of America, hundreds of people took #spoontember selfies, and the support of our community to help end hunger was displayed in so many other ways.

Thanks to all who volunteered during the Double Down Challenge. Bremer Bank matched each volunteer hour with a $5 donation. The challenge was met and a donation of $50,000 was made. In addition, UnitedHealthcare matched donations up to $50,000. Through donations and matches, more than 800,000 meals were provided in September! Thank you Bremer Bank and UnitedHealthcare for supporting those we serve.

We are grateful for the outpouring of support this Hunger Action Month. Thank you!
