1 in 9 Minnesotans will struggle to put food on the table in 2017. To address hunger and poverty, FFEN collaborates with foundati­ons, public and private agencies, and food shelves. Since 2013 FFEN has positively impacted 36 food shelves in 22 counties, across 61 Minnesota communities.

White Bear KID Pack Program

FFEN has partnered with Step One Foods and the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf to help ensure children have a stable source of food this summer. The program, called KID Pack, is providing 250 White Bear Lake-area children in need with a backpack full of six healthy and nutritious meals each weekend this summer.
Your donation — in any amount — will have an immediate and measurable impact for children in the White Bear Lake area.
  • Give $13.50 — the amount you would pay for a movie ticket and popcorn — and a child will receive six meals for a weekend.
  • Give $162 and a child will receive six nutritious meals every weekend this summer.
You can make a world of difference for Minnesota children this summer. Please donate now to prevent childhood hunger.
