Take the Summer Challenge in July!

sun           oyh

Have you ever wondered where or when you will get food for your next meal? This is the situation many area families find themselves in during the summer months when kids are home from school. More meals to provide and/or additional daycare expenses can push families to seek help at their area food shelf, which can struggle to meet the increased need. To help, two Minnesota organizations, Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless and Hunger Solutions, partner to help food shelves across the state by partially matching July monetary donations.

You can provide food for kids and families with a gift in July. Your help is needed and appreciated!

Bemidji Community Food Shelf will benefit from Community Pint Night at Bemidji Brewing on Wednesday, October 24 from 4 – 7 p.m. Come for a pint and a portions of the proceeds will benefit BCFS! Monetary donations are important at the Food Shelf as $1 can buy four meals for our customers, and most of the food (2/3) that we distribute at the Food Shelf is purchased by us through monetary donations and grants.

Be sure to cash out by 7 p.m. in order to have your donation counted!

We’re thankful to be the recipient of Community Pint Night through Bemidji Brewing!
