Minnesota FoodShare’s March Campaign is the largest annual food and fund drive in the state. It is the only time of the year contributions to food shelves leverage additional dollars. This year, the goal of the IOCP Food Shelf was to collect 90,000 pounds of food and $90,000 during the campaign to address the growing need in our community.
In our last fiscal year, we saw a 12 percent increase in the use of our food shelf over the previous fiscal year. And this year, an average of 875 individuals a month use the food shelf.
Final results are in! IOCP collected $112,042 and 77,879 lbs. of food.
