Food Shelf Resources:

  • Visit Hunger Solutions MN COVID-19 Response Page for regular statewide updates for the Hunger Relief Sector.

  • For Food Shelves with paid employees, we encourage you to apply for a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan if you feel it would help you pay your employees. PPP loans are available to nonprofits of 500 employees or less on a rolling basis. Reach out to your local bank for further details or visit Propel Nonprofit's Blog with next steps.
