Our goal is to not only help our hungry neighbors today, but to provide the means for everyone to be fed tomorrow. Each year we collect, warehouse and distribute food for over 12.5 million meals that would have otherwise gone to waste, improving life for more than 97,000 people (36 percent children). Thousands of partners engage in the day-to-day work of hunger relief. We touch the lives of 1 in 9 people who seek assistance though our programs and our partner network of over 300 charitable feeding programs across N.D. and Clay County, Minn. As stewards of community support, we direct 96 percent of every charitable dollar toward programs and services, ensuring food for those who are hungry. We believe ending hunger is a shared responsibility, and the right thing to do.
