Statewide Adverstising

Dear Editor:

February 18th, 2010

March is Minnesota FoodShare month. This is the time when donations made to Sibley County FoodShare keep on giving because the Minnesota Food Bank will match a certain percentage of the food and dollars that are donated to our Sibley County Food Shelf during the month of March. The Feinstein Foundation of Rhode Island will also match a percentage of food and dollars donated in March and April.

Often times the question is asked, “Does hunger really exist in Sibley County?” The answer is “yes.” In 2009, Sibley County FoodShare served 7,383 individuals. This is an increase of 24% over the number served in 2008. It is projected 2010 will find even more households seeking help from our food shelf.

Sibley County FoodShare has been serving the hungry in Sibley County for over 28 years. It has existed during this time on the donations and generosity of the people of our county. For this we thank the wonderful, caring people that have made this possible through sharing their blessings and by volunteering their time to help at the food shelf. We ask for your ongoing support as we continue to provide assistance to hungry children and adults.

Will you please join the March campaign and donate to help end hunger in Sibley County?

Your donations are tax deductible. Thank you.

Yvonne O’Brien,
Sibley County FoodShare
