Letter: March FoodShare month approaching

Published 6:55 pm Tuesday, February 26, 2019

The Ecumenical Food Pantry in Albert Lea is once again partnering with the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign. This is the 38th year of coordinating the largest grassroots food and fund drive to help restock Minnesota food shelves.

The Ecumenical Food Pantry serves an average of about 200 households a month and is open from 9 to 11:45 a.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays. The pantry is in First Presbyterian Church, 308 Water St. in Albert Lea. Volunteers are the heart of the Ecumenical Food Pantry and come from many area churches. This means all of your donations of food and money stay in the local area to benefit those who need your help.

Checks may be made payable to Ecumenical Food Pantry and mailed to 308 Water St., Albert Lea, MN 56007. Food donations may be dropped off here also.
