Give to the Max Day: Double FFEN's Impact


It’s already November and that means Give to the Max early giving has started. FFEN has a goal of raising $70,000 from now through November 18, 2021, to reshape the hunger-relief at both the local and system levels. The need for increased food access across the state continues to grow and evolve as the COVID-19 pandemic wears on.


Your donation to FFEN provides tailored consultation to both food shelves and food banks, focused on improvements to ensure that food shelf shoppers experience predictable, healthy food options presented through a welcoming, easy process in all Minnesota communities. FFEN's skilled volunteers provide the perfect pairing of new coolers and food sourcing expertise to improve fresh food access on a sustainable budget.


Give to the Max Day is Thursday, November 18th. But you don’t have to wait until the “Giving Holiday” to make your donation. Your donation today (through November 18th) will be doubled, thanks to our generous donors:

  • Alerus Mortgage

  • Kurt & Nancie Klitkze

  • Dr. O’Neil & Dr. Klodas

  • John & Rebecca Brown Sperling

Additionally, FFEN has a chance to win an additional $500 each day that an early giving donation is made. Golden tickets of $1,000 will also be awarded every 15 minutes on Give to the May Day for donations given here.


Whether you donate before or on November 18th, you will make healthy food more accessible and predictable to Minnesotans experiencing food insecurity.
