Your donation will be doubled for
East Side Food Programs!
On Give to the Max day November 17, and due to the generosity of the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation, your gift will be doubled as we seek to repair and renovate our food warehouse building located at 445 8th Avenue North in Minneapolis. Built in the 1930’s as a fish processing building, it needs a makeover for safety and efficiency! The warehouse serves our three metro food programs:
· The Senior Food Shelf serves adults 55 and over residing in Hennepin County. In 2015, the need for its services grew by 27%.
· The High Rise Mobile Food Shelf delivers a food shelf twice a month to 39 subsidized high rise buildings with residents who are 55+ or disabled. Over 200 residents volunteer to set up the food shelf and organize each distribution under the guidance of ESNS staff.
· Glendale Food Shelf provides supplemental and culturally specific food assistance to the Glendale Townhomes in SE Minneapolis. Glendale is a diverse community of families with the majority being immigrants from East Africa and Southeast Asia.
Help us modernize the electrical system, replace the crumbling loading dock, expand the cooler for produce, and do some long overdue painting.
