Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign, the largest grassroots food and fund drive in the state, brings together organizations, businesses, faith communities, and individuals to help stock and support the capacity of nearly 300 food shelves. The 2024 campaign runs February 26th - April 6th. All donations received by Lakes Area Food Shelf during this campaign will determine the amount we receive from GMCC's FoodFund. To date, GMCC’s Minnesota FoodShare has distributed over $18.5 million dollars via the FoodFund.
The Brainerd Lakes Area has a history of creatively and generously supporting this food and fund drive for its food shelves. Please consider joining this initiative either individually, or with your faith community, your neighbors, your club or your co-workers or business and have fun collecting food and funds!
Donate via the PayPal Giving Fund with your PayPal account or credit card. PayPal Giving Fund provides you the Donation Receipt and waives all transaction fees so we receive your entire donation amount.
