It’s March and that means it’s time for the annual Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign! This month is so important to ICA—it’s one of our biggest for food and fund drives. We rely on the food and funds collected during this month to get us through the next few months of operations. We also received additional matched funds from Minnesota FoodShare based on how much we raise. The more we raise, the more we receive. Here’s how you can get involved:
Host a food drive: at your workplace, school, congregation, or community organization.
Host a fund drive: Raising funds for ICA is a great team-building feel-good activity. ICA can purchase up to ten times the amount of food with your dollars!
Attend Empty Bowls: Truly one of the best days of the year, Empty Bowls brings together our entire community to raise funds for those in need and celebrate local schools and arts. Join us on Tuesday, March 13 between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. at Hopkins Center for the Arts. Learn more at hopkinsemptybowls.org.
Donate now! Please consider making a gift to ICA this month! Every dollar makes a difference, and ICA uses your dollars well! We were recently recognized as a Four Star Charity by Charity Navigator, and we Meet Standards as recognized by the Charities Review Council.
Our neighbors in need work so hard to provide good lives for their children and families, and we are proud to provide help where it’s needed. Last year, ICA helped 2,019 local families through our services that address foo , stability, and employment.
