MN Foodshare Month logo Join us this March as we collect food for our local food shelves! This year Calvin Church is dividing members into three teams for a little friendly competition and a bigger goal of collecting food. Three Session members will act as team leaders –

Kathy Berg is captain for Team #1, collecting for the Maple Plain Food Shelf and will be joined by members with last names ending A-F.

Chelsea Rhea is heading Team #2, collecting for IOCP, joined by those whose last names begin G-O.

Tammy Wenz is captain for Team #3, collecting for WeCan, joined by those whose last names begin P-W.

Minnesota FoodShare campaign works hard to collect food during the month of March, to help stock the shelves for the busy summer months and secure funding distributed later in the year. Our donations in March are eligible for matching grants; the Session approved a financial donation to three local food shelves. Now it is our turn as we work to end hunger in our community.

There are boxes in the Gathering Hall for each team to fill with your donations. This projects needs to be completed by March 30th so it is important to get your items in as soon as possible. We will be using a point system to name the team winners. Let’s have fun with this and be a huge help to people in need!
