The North Country Food Bank in Crookston needs help to raise money and
collecting food to support the food shelf, which serves more than 350 families
each month in Polk County and distributes more than 25,000 pounds of food each
month. April Zammert, North Country Food Shelf coordinator is urging people to
participate in the Minnesota FoodShare’s March campaign. “We are collecting
canned goods or money donations this month and the Minnesota FoodShare will
receive a percentage of matching funds on all pounds and dollars raised in the
month,” said Zammert. “This is the biggest campaign of the year and will
provide food for the next six months.”
Zammert collects food every day for the food shelf from local businesses, which
is distributed to families and people in need. “I take in the clients and walk
them around the food shelf and based on the number in the family,” said Zammert.
“They can get canned goods, juice, breakfast cereals, snacks, boxed dinners and
I go to Wal-Mart and Hugo’s every day to get a bunch of fresh produce and meat
and try to give it out each day so it is fresh when the families stop in.”
The food shelf gets about 25 to 30 families every day.
