Minnesota FoodShare Returns

FoodShare is a statewide fund-raising campaign for over 300 food shelves. Saint Mark’s past support of Groveland Food Shelf has helped it extend its outreach efforts. In the early 2000's it collaborated with Free Cycle (a program operated by Pillsbury House) to establish the first food shelf devoted entirely to homeless youth. In 2013, Groveland collaborated with MCTC and opened a satellite food shelf on campus for students. This latest effort was the work of Mary Ann Prado (the then Director of the college's Resource Center), Dave Enghusen (Food Shelf Director) and Saint Markan Rich Maier (then the Treasurer of Groveland). Mary Ann conceived the idea and looked to Dave and Rich for help in making it happen. Throughout the next few weeks we will share stories of this partnership which complements Saint Mark’s own work with the college to support its students in need. Meanwhile we hope you will consider contributing to this collaboration by writing checks out to Saint Mark’s and noting Groveland/MCTC in the memo line.
