Fire department joins Salvation Army in March food drive

March is "Minnesota Food Share Month," a time for folks throughout the state to help bring food to the tables of local families in need. During the month, the Minneapolis Fire Department is partnering with the Salvation Army in an effort to give back to the community and express appreciation to that organization’s charitable work.  

From March 1 through 31, Minneapolis fire stations will be drop-off points for accepting food donations. Firefighters and the public can bring non-perishable food items to any of the City’s 19 fire stations. All donations collected during Minnesota Food Share Month will go toward food shelves in Minneapolis for local assistance. 

Help local families in need by dropping off donations at all of the fire stations. Minnesota Food Share runs a March campaign every year to coordinate food donations for food shelves across the state of Minnesota.  Food donations are needed at this time because food shelves have run through their holiday-time supplies.
