Take action during Hunger Action Month

Hunger Action Month 2020
This month, we join people and organizations across the nation in fighting hunger. Locally, you can take action during Hunger Action Month by supporting our work in providing food to children living with food insecurity in Minnesota.

Why Taking Action Matters

Children throughout the world suffer from hunger, and Minnesota is no exception. We see child hunger in Minnesota not as a supply problem, but a distribution problem. Learn more about child hunger in Minnesota.

Hunger Action Ideas
  1. Fundraise: Create a fundraiser and invite your family and friends to participate by donating to your fundraiser. You can tell your story of why raising funds to go towards children living with food insecurity is important for you. To make it extra special, create a fundraiser in honor of your birthday, your kid’s birthday, wedding, retirement, or any other celebration that is near and dear to your heart.
  2. Volunteer: Sign up to volunteer at one of our packing events at our warehouse in Roseville. You’ll help pack bags of food that contain approximately four meals of non-perishable, nutritious food that gets distributed to children and families in our community. You can participate in one of our public packing events or schedule a private packing event just for your faith community, business, organization, school youth group, etc.
  3. Donate Food: Bring non-perishable food items to our warehouse in Roseville. Share items from your pantry, grab a few extra items on your next grocery run, or collect items from neighbors and coworkers. Prefer to do this virtually? Browse our online shopping cart and fund food digitally. Whether you choose to donate food physically or digitally, we welcome whichever approach best suits you.
  4. Attend a Community Event: Support local businesses that support The Sheridan Story. From grocery round-up programs to virtual runs, when you attend events put on by the amazing organizations who’ve stepped up to support our mission, you are helping us feed kids while supporting our community overall.
