March Food Drive - Feeding Neighbors in Need

Every year, people across the state join forces with Minnesota FoodShare in a concerted effort to put an end to hunger during March Food Drive. This month-long campaign has year-long benefits for hungry families in Minnesota.

Hunger is a critical issue that affects many of our neighbors. 1 in 8 Minnesotans struggle with food insecurity. In a difficult economy, hunger in our state has more than doubled since 2008, and our food shelves have seen a dramatic increase in demand for emergency resources.

Your contribution to Neighborhood House's March Food Drive will give local families direct access to the nutritious foods they need. Click here to learn more about our food shelves

Our goal is to raise 200,000 dollars and pounds of food during the month of March.
This will go a long way toward feeding hungry families. Will you help us?


2014 March Campaign Goal: 200,000 lbs/$


Become a Hunger Hero Today!

We call donors and partners who support the food shelves "Hunger Heroes" because their donations make a big impact in the fight against hunger. There's never been a better time to join the team!
  • Just $10. Donating cash is a great way to support March Food Drive. We know how to stretch a dollar and every dollar makes a difference. Did you know $50 could be lunch and dinner for a family of four for a week? You can make a donation by mailing your check to 179 Robie Street East, Saint Paul, MN 55107, or CLICK HERE to donate online.
  • Feed a Family. It's easy to start you own food drive at home, using your own pantry. Ask your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers to do the same. Bring the bags of food to the food shelf to be weighed. Every pound gets us closer to our goal! 
  • Follow Your Food. Where will the food from your food drive end up? Follow your cans all the way from donation to distribution when you pair your food drive with a volunteer experience. Place the food you have raised on our shelves, and then put it directly into the hands of the families who need it most. Great for groups! Contact Riley to get involved, 651-789-3626 or armayland@neighb.org.
