Thank you to all who contributed to the success of the 2018 March Food Drive! With committed individuals like you, we collected over 3,000 pounds of food and $80,000+  to help food insecure families on the East Side.  

Whether you contributed volunteer hours, financial contributions or food donations, we appreciate the support and we could not do this work without you! Thank you for your commitment to helping families gather around their tables for a nutritious and wholesome meal!

Each March, Minnesotans rally together to support food shelves and help those who are hungry. Merrick’s food shelf relies on strong food and cash donations in March to keep the shelves stocked throughout the year. We’re calling on businessescongregations, and individuals to fight hunger on the East Side by donating food and funds.
