Our neighbors need your support. Jake recently lost his job and he and his wife are struggling to support their family. Their youngest child is entering third grade, and their oldest is entering high school. Jake continues to look for a full-time job while working as a part-time evening cashier at a local convenience store. Even with his wife’s income, Jake finds his family living paycheck to paycheck. Like many Minnesotans struggling to make ends meet, Jake and his wife struggle with the choice between paying their bills and buying the necessities – like food.
Jake is not alone. Across Minnesota, one in five families with children experience hunger. Jake visits his neighborhood food shelf each month, finding the nutritious food his family needs to face life’s challenges.
When you support The Food Group, you are stocking local food shelves with fresh fruits, vegetables, and lean meats our neighbors need to thrive.
