It’s a time of giving, and for those who can’t put food on the table, it can be an especially stressful time. Colleen Moriarty with Hunger Solutions Minnesota says
“This is certainly a time of year when it comes to mind to donate to food shelves and I encourage that because they really need to help families, and then Christmas vacations kids are off school, there’s a lot of issues for beyond just those two days
Moriarty expects around 3.4 million visits to food shelves this year–which she says is on par with other recent years. For information on where to find the food shelf nearest you, visit Hunger Solutions Minnesota’s website.
