Making big change with pocket change.


March 2009 Project:
Helping Food Shelves Feed the Hungry

Look what we did! Stocked an entire foodshelf!

We raised $1533.33 from 109 individuals! That will provide a day's worth of meals for over 2300 people. Thanks so much to all of you who donated and told others about this project! Plus, a big thank you to Kowalski's Market for donating $300 worth of grocery bags!

One factor in our success was a nice article about our project in the University of Minnesota faculty/staff newsletter The Brief.

I had promised to fasten food on my forehead if we met our goal. And even though we didn't, I still thought our effort was food-fastening-worthy! (It's couscous.)

Of course, even though it's no longer Minnesota FoodShare Month (March), the hunger still continues. If you would like to donate to Keystone Community Services who operates three local food shelves, you can do so below.

Note: PayPal charges
2.9% + $.30 per transaction.

 

Donations can also be mailed to:

Keystone Community Services
2000 St. Anthony Ave.
St. Paul, MN 55104

And here's the story of why food shelves need cash, even as little as $.99!
