Interfaith Hosts Shop Then Drop Event
Local nonprofit Interfaith Outreach is making a final push to collect food donations during Minnesota Food Share Month.
The organization has a goal of raising $200,000 and filling the food shelf with specific items by April 16. The most needed items include shampoo, conditioner, body wash, cooking oils and cereal.
As part of the Prevent Hunger campaign, Interfaith held a Shop then Drop event on Tuesday. Community members dropped off donations and enjoyed goody bags filled with ways to prevent hunger in the community.
“The pandemic has made it even harder for families and neighbors in our community to put food on the table and consistently support their families. Now’s the time, step up, help us not only meet hunger needs in our community but work with us to prevent hunger in the future,” said Liz Erstad-Hicks, with Interfaith Outreach.
Interfaith is accepting donations on Mondays and Fridays from 10 to 5 p.m. Financial donations can be made on the Interfaith Outreach website.
