Mobile food shelves distribute food throughout Minnesota

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
