Food shelves continue to face unique challenges in 2020 as they distribute food to more families in new ways due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. FFEN is responding to these needs, supporting twice as many food shelves as last year.
Your tax-deductible donation to FFEN will provide equipment improvements, cost-efficient food sourcing, and layout redesigns to Minnesota food shelves, allowing them to better serve their community during this time.
Now is a great time to give. Thanks to generous supporters, your contribution (now until Nov. 19th) will be matched dollar for dollar--ensuring that your gift will go twice as far.
Just last month, people like you helped a food shelf identify sustainable cost-savings in food sourcing which allowed the organization to hire a part-time food shelf coordinator and increase the healthfulness of the food being distributed. "I must say, I'm in awe of your hands-on, customized approach to helping," a food shelf board member told FFEN. "It feels like you are 'getting in the trenches' with us to grow our capacity and resilience from where we are."
You can help another food shelf better serve their community during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. I hope you will consider making a gift today.
