Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign

March 6, 2015


Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign has begun!  This month our community is working together throughout the state to raise money and food for all food shelves.  And the best part is every dollar and pound raised in our community of Northfield stays here.

Fighting hunger is a daily commitment of the CAC, and this month the CAC asks our community to take action and raise money in their places of worship, with their families, in their places of work, or in their clubs.

YOU have the power to make a difference.  Please help!
