Across the state, Minnesota’s hunger relief network has worked together to find innovative ways to distribute food to those in need. In one rural town, two refrigerated tractor-trailers were set up in a parking lot to disseminate fresh food to around 550 families. One large organization in the network, Hunger Solutions Minnesota, was able to distribute $6 million of federal funding to smaller nonprofits so that they could purchase refrigerated trucks to enhance their reach. In one suburban area, The Open Door Pantry organization assembled mobile drive-through pop-up food pantries. They served over 18,000 people in May 2020; 68 percent of those served had not previously visited the pantry. #covid-19 #foodsecurity
