We Depend on You

We are committed to protecting the health of our entire community while continuing to meet the critical need for meals that will increase due to the coronavirus. We need your help now more than ever, as we work to meet increased need.

What can you do? 

  • Please stay home if you’re sick. If you've experienced a fever, cough or shortness of breath in the last 7 days, please stay home to protect members of our community who are most vulnerable to illness, like those living with food insecurity.
  • Please stay home if you’ve traveled outside of the state of MN in the last 14 days. Symptoms may appear up to 14 days after exposure.
  • Please stay home if you have been in contact with anyone that has had symptoms or has been dianosed with COVID-19 or Influenza A or B in the last 7 days.
  • If you are healthy and available to volunteer to help us pack the emergency food boxes and other high-demand items, schedule a shift below.
  • Fund an emergency food box. We need your help to prepare our neighbors for this tough time.
