Feeding the Need
HELP US with our GOAL to PROVIDE
30,000 POUNDS of FOOD to THOSE in NEED.
- In Minnesota, 1 in 6 children lives at risk of hunger.
- 600,000 Minnesotans are missing 100 million meals every year.
- More than 8,500 people per day use a food shelf in Minnesota.
- The need for food shelf assistance has increased 166% in the last decade.
Our Goal is Simple
|Girl Scouts River Valleys is committed to making a difference, which is why we’ve teamed up with General Mills to take action against hunger.
We want to provide 30,000 pounds of food to those in need. Every 1.2 pounds of food donated provides one meal to a child in need. Search for food shelves in Minnesota and and across the country to find the nearest food shelf for your donations.
