The Food Group is an innovative hunger relief organization dedicated to serving the needs of our changing communities through the distribution and promotion of healthy foods to over 200 partner food shelves & meal programs.
The Fifth Annual “Hunger Bash” will take place on Friday, September 9, 2016. This year the gala will be held at the historic Depot in Minneapolis. The evening will feature live music, delicious food, live and silent auctions, and a short program. Proceeds from the evening go towards the purchase of healthy foods to be distributed to our network of food shelf and program partners.
Marlys is a resident at a Saint Paul Public Housing building where The Food Group delivers monthly food distributions. Neighbors introduced her to this opportunity and prior to participating she was constantly worried about being hungry and when she would have her next meal.Read more
