Semcac’s Food Shelves Are Participating in Open Your Heart to the Hungry & Homeless
The four Semcac Food Shelves are participating in the 2019 Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless Summer Challenge, a donation drive sponsored by Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless and Hunger Solutions, that takes place in July. As a member of Hunger Solutions Minnesota, Semcac is eligible to receive a percentage of grant funds designated for this challenge. The grant amount given to the food shelf will depend upon the amount raised during the month of July. Therefore, more donations mean more grant money for the Semcac food shelves, located in Kasson, Caledonia, Preston and Rushford.
In 2018, the four food shelves served 1,284 households who made 7,632 visits. The food shelves received donations totals of 355,412 pounds of food and goods. Donations of cash, food, and other products help make the food shelf assistance possible. In 2019 the food shelf staff has been working with Channel One Food Bank and the Foundation For Essential Needs – FFEN, to make required and necessary improvements to the food shelf and our services.
