The Food Group Food/Donation Drive

-

SGAD is partnering up with our buddies at The Food Group for another round of Giving A Damn together. If you are making a beer run, simply bring in a non-perishable food item (or bag of items) to one of the participating local liquor stores and we will give you 20% off at the Surly Company Store . Just look for the blue bins! This drive runs all 31 days in December.

If you’d rather donate $$$ from the comfort of your own home, fundraising link here: www.givemn.org/Surly 

Note from The Food GroupWith the onset of the pandemic, need for emergency food continues at historically high levels. Lost jobs and wages, reduced access to free meals for kids, fear of shopping because of health concerns, and the loss of support networks all contribute to the increased need. Today, one in eight Minnesotans are hungry, compared to one in eleven in 2019. The Food Group has been distributing almost double the amount of food the past few months. We are currently distributing to a network of more than 200 food shelf and meal program partners reaching 30 counties in MN and Western WI. We are anticipating the peak need is yet to come this winter as federal and state support for low-income families decreases and as the utility prices in Minnesota increase.
