The March Campaign is run by the Minnesota FoodShare. In the month of March, there is an extra incentive for food shelves to collect donations of food and money. At the end of the month, the number of clients served and the number of donations are tallied. Based on the numbers, a percentage of an allocation fund is awarded to each of the food shelves that participated in the March Campaign.
Essentially all food fund distributions are made off of two things
1. How many people a food shelf served in the previous year
2. How many pounds and dollars were raised in the most recent March Campaign.
Minnesota FoodShare then does a percent or proportional match based off of these numbers and the size of our food fund. The distributions will change every year since the reported numbers above will always be changing as will the amount of money they have in their food fund to distribute. They DO NOT do a 100% or dollar for dollar/ dollar for pound match.
RIGHT NOW is the time to donate for 2017.
In 2015, $1,097.49 were donated to the CROSS Center.
