Some people face food insecurity every day, while others struggle after an unexpected expense or decrease in income. Hunger can lead to poor health or illness in addition to poor performance at school or work.
The annual Minnesota Food Share March campaign promotes the collection of food and funds to stock food shelves across the state. As an official participant, SEMCAC’s Houston County Food Shelf in Caledonia will receive a percentage of the undesignated statewide March Food Share funds.
The allocation depends on the amount of food and money raised during March and on the number of people served during the remainder of the year.
The Care Team of Trinity encourages donations of food and money to help with this campaign. Donations must be received by March 29 to count toward the March Food Share campaign.
Respond to food insecurity in our community by filling a grocery bag with much needed food and household items for our local Houston County Food Shelf. Trinity also has a Little Free Pantry (not to be confused with Houston County Food Shelf in Caledonia) that is located at the bottom of the stairs of the south entrance (closest to the parking lot). This Little Free Pantry is available for anyone to use; it has the same needs as the Houston Food Shelf.
Requested donations include: canned soups, canned fruit, saltine crackers, scalloped or AuGratin potatoes, cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, pancake mix, and sugar.
