One in 10 Minnesotans or more than 500,000 state resident experience food insecurity on a regular basis. Food insecurity is not knowing where your next meal is coming from. Food share month is a campaign to make people more aware of the need for healthy food and dollars to buy the food.
Our congregation has extended a challenge to Lands Lutheran Congregation! Which congregation can gather the most food and the most money during the month of March.
The challenge will begin March 1 and end March 22. Each pound of food will count as one point and each dollar will count as one point. Just remember, the food shelf can purchase more food from Channel 1 food bank than we can, with each dollar.
The prize for the winner at the end of the month will be an ICE CREAM SOCIAL hosted by the losing congregation on April 12.
So give as much as you can! If you want to write a check, make it out to United Redeemer with food shelf in the memo line. One check will be given at the end.
Let’s do this so we can win and enjoy the victory and the ice cream!!!
The big winners will be the people who depend on the food shelf.
