What to do if you need food

Did You Know?

  • 9.5% of Minnesota households are food insecure and will struggle to find enough food this week.
  • One in six Minnesota children lives at risk of hunger.
  • If you aren’t getting the nutrition your body needs, it can lead to disease, depression, and poor performance at school or work.

What Can I Try?

  • If you are at risk of not having food, act now to get assistance.

  • If you are experiencing a crisis, and need immediate access to food, please contact Heidi Favet, Community Hub Coordinator at (218)365-7980.
