Watch this one minute video clip highlighting the Food Drive Toolkit

To take the guesswork out how to organize a food drive, we have created a toolkit for you to use. The toolkit  includes the following

  • Information on Food Shelves located in Aitkin County

  • List of recommended food donations

  • Recipe cards (Want to help donate food items to help those who are in need to create a meal? Shop for food items listed on a recipe card and include it in your donation!)

Food shelves rely on the generosity from our community to serve families in need year-round. Whether you’re donating money or food, each gift helps us fight hunger a little more.

 

While fresh foods are an important part of the food we provide, non-perishables are also needed and easy for you to donate. Food shelves can make the most of your non-perishable food donation when you consider three things: nutrition, usefulness, and quality vs. quantity.

 

While all donations are important and appreciated, Aitkin County Public Health and the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) program encourages the public to choose healthy, nutrient-packed donations from the list above over highly processed, boxed foods like little Debbie snacks and ramen noodles.
