Support Food Shelf

System Transformation

Donations to FFEN are stewarded carefully for meaningful and lasting impact. Dollars help update food shelf operations

so the benefit continues into the future.

Your generous contributions support a strong and stable food shelf for all Minnesota communities.  Our powerful approach is to invest in local food shelf equipment and space improvements while providing a FFEN volunteer consultant to support implementation of business and service best practices.

We need donors like you to help us expand food shelf capacity and increase sustainability.

Our family believes it is our obligation to give back to support our community.  FFEN has a unique mission and place in the delivery of food to those in need in Minnesota, and we support FFEN because they provide critical and much needed technical and economic resources to community food shelves — improving their efficiency and long-term stability.  We believe this is where FFEN makes a true difference."
