1 in 10 people living in the Twin Cities metro area do not know when their next meal is coming. Neighbors’ food shelf serves about 30 families per day. Individual and group volunteers are needed to sort food donations, stock shelves, and assist families in getting a weeks’ worth of food donations. Your support will prevent more families from going hungry. Feel gratified knowing that our neighbors are being fed.
Ways to Help
