There is a serious need to feed hungry Minnesotans right now as individuals and families are turning to food shelves, meal programs, food banks, and federal nutrition programs for help. Over the last several months, Second Harvest’s member agencies have identified a double-digit growth in the number of individuals requesting hunger assistance. The need has never been greater than it is at this moment. And because of the Missing Meals research project, we now know that we are 125 million meals away from feeding every hungry Minnesotan.
With this statistic in mind, the MSE Community Giving department will be holding a monthlong food drive to benefit Second Harvest Heartland in order to help feed hungry individuals and families across the state during what is a very difficult time for many in our community.
