Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign
During the month of March, local businesses and organizations conduct their own unique food and fund drives, implementing a variety of activities to collect food and funds. The efforts of
co-workers, friends and neighbors working together will help the nearly 13,000 food insecure people living in Olmsted County and help Channel One feed the nearly 3,400 households that use the Supplemental Food Shelf every month.
Minnesota FoodShare has a unique focus of supporting food shelves throughout the state in their efforts to feed the hungry and has coordinated the March Campaign for more than 30 years. All food and cash donations that Channel One receives during the month stay in our local community to help feed people in need. Every pound and dollar is important because the more food and funds that Channel One collects during March, the greater the allocation from the Minnesota FoodShare statewide incentive fund.
Channel One's goal for 2017 is to raise $225,000 and 225,000 pounds of food during the month of March. Register your organization today for the March campaign.
Together we can feed people and change lives! Did you know that Channel One can turn a mere $1 into enough food for at least five meals for our hungry neighbors?Learn more »
