Challenge Yourself to End Hunger
Accept the 2019 Food Shelf Challenge from Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless and ICA Food Shelf this July.
You can make a difference for hungry families in our community.
Minnesota summers were made for trips to the cabin, boat rides on the lake, and farmers market outings, not food shelf visits. But that’s the reality for thousands of Minnesotans. Children are home from school and the family budget is tight. ICA Food Shelf helps provide nutritious fruits and vegetables to these families and needs your help this summer.
We see an increase in child visits during the summer. When school is out for summer vacation, many children miss out on free school meals and their families turn to us for support.
Make a bigger impact on hunger in our community this July
Every day, Minnesotans make over 9,000 visits to food shelves statewide – that is six visits to a food shelf every minute. Each month, ICA serves 800 families.
You can make a difference this year by donating throughout the month of July. The more you donate, the larger our food shelf’s grant from Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless will be. The challenge funds will proportionally match your donation. Your financial donation will go further due to our buying power. We can purchase food from our food bank for pennies on the pound.
Thank you Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless and Hunger Solutions Minnesota for this grant!
