Help us create an East Side Saint Paul community where all residents have access to healthy foods. Last year, with the help of hundreds like you, Merrick was able to raise over 43,000lbs of food as well as $80,000 in charitable contributions.

This year, help us reach our goal of 50,000lbs of food and $90,000 in donations that will help feed your neighbors. Give today and be part of Minnesota’s largest campaign against hunger!

Participant Voices

“I went from referring people to the food shelf to being a client of the food shelf… And I had to find ways to access resources just in order to live.”
–Moussa Foster, Merrick Food Shelf Participant

Volunteer Voices

“It’s not just about giving people food, it’s about getting to know them and their stories, getting to know your community and helping out in the small ways you can.”
