The Ecumenical Food Pantry in Albert Lea is once again partnering with the Minnesota Foodshare March Campaign. This is the 41st year of coordinating the largest grassroots food and fund drive to help restock Minnesota food shelves.

In 2021, the Ecumenical Food Pantry served over 3,100 individuals, including over 900 children. The pantry is open from 9 to 11:45 a.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays and is located in the First Presbyterian Church, 308 Water St., 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 there also. 

Please consider helping our friends and neighbors during the March campaign.
