March is Minnesota Food Share Month.
Today started our 3rd Annual Biggest Giver Food Drive Challenge for our designated charity, the PROP Food Shelf in Eden Prairie, MN. Hartfiel was introduced to this challenge through our customer, MGS Machine and we have made a significant impact in the past. The first year we collected more than 500 lbs. of food and $175 in cash, year two we increased that amount up to 750 pounds! This year we will work hard to reach or exceed the 750 pounds again.
The 2012 Food Drive was kicked off with a special breakfast event. Employees traded food donations or cash donations for a bagel breakfast. Throughout the month of March additional food raising events will take place as we work hard to exceed our goal.
March 7th – Pizza Lunch
March 15th – Bake Sale
March 22nd – Chili Contest
The Hunger in America/Minnesota Study, released in March 2010, found that hunger has doubled in Minnesota over the past five years and that 40 percent of those seeking hunger relief in Minnesota are now children under the age of 18.
According to the Minnesota Emergency Food Shelf Network, 11% of the children served by Minnesota food shelves are forced to skip a meal because there is not enough food at home and 43% of their parents skip meals.
