More than 200,000 children in Minnesota live with food insecurity. Without reliable access to food – such as meal programs at school – the risk of hunger is very real.
The Sheridan Story seeks to end child hunger through community and school partnerships. With the help of our community partners, we provide meals on Friday afternoons to local kids who are living in food insecurity, meaning they are not always sure where their next meal is coming from. We began just five years ago in one school in NE Minneapolis and have grown to over 180 schools in the Twin Cities area since then. The Sheridan Story developed a logistical model to provide food for those kids and help close the weekend food gap, because we believe that this is not a supply problem but a distribution problem. The Sheridan Story works to combat hunger in our community by filling the gaps to food access that children face: primarily weekends and Summers.
The N* Chapter will be partnering with The Sheridan Story during the month of July. During our Membership Appreciation get-together AND our normal July Business meeting, we’ll be taking donations (goods and monetary) to support our local children. Please do what you can.
