Since March, The Food Group has added 31 new food distribution partners to its network of 150-plus food shelves, provided over 3.6 million meals and coordinated over 2,700 volunteer hours in preparation for food distribution.

During the packing event, volunteers exceeded the packing goal of 4,000 boxes by 200. Altogether, 63,000 pounds of food was packed, or 52,500 meals.

The need for volunteers is higher than ever at hunger organizations. Currently, The Food Group is seeking to fill a series of two-hour regular volunteer shifts, including 9-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. Monday through Friday and 4-6 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. Learn more at thefoodgroupmn.volunteerhub.com.
