The need to eradicate hunger lasts year round

Special to Maplewood Living from Samantha Soriano, Food Shelf Manager, Merrick Community Services

Food Shelf 2March is an important month for safety net agencies like Merrick Community Services, because it’s when Minnesota’s FoodShare campaign takes place.

Here’s what your donations can do for someone in need:
$20 will purchase a box of fresh vegetables (potatoes, onions, carrots, etc.)
$50 will provide breakfasts for a child for a month
$100 will provide a family meals for a week

Volunteers needed. Merrick Food Shelf can always use volunteers year round to help with restocking, distribution, intake, data entry, etc. Volunteer shifts are flexible. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact Samantha Soriano at 651-287-2088 or
