We are deeply grateful for your partnership during this time of increased need. Executive director, Sophia Lenarz-Coy, shares more about the critical ways you are providing emergency meals and nutritious food to those who most need them. 

With the combined crises of COVID-19 and the unrest following the killing of George Floyd, the need is greater than ever. Our neighbors continue to experience multiple barriers to food access. 

If you’ve recently made a donation for COVID-19 Emergency Relief and Rapid Response following the unrest- we can’t thank you enough.

Thank you for lifting our community up during an extremely difficult time. 

We are also sharing a June 19 Star Tribune story, Minneapolis pop-up food shelves transition to meet neighborhoods’ needs after Floyd death. Sophia shares her observations about how our community is coming together to feed each other. 

Donations to the COVID-19 Emergency Fund and Rapid Response Fund are still urgently needed. You can give online or mail a check payable to The Food Group, to 8501 54th Ave N, New Hope, MN 55428.
