Hennepin County

As you can imagine, access to food is a challenge for many Hennepin County residents during the Coronavirus Pandemic. The food shelves and food banks rely heavily on volunteers to support their initiatives to get food to those who need it. Please consider reaching out to one of the food banks in your community if you have any time and want to help. 


Even a couple hours of time helps many Hennepin County residents in need!
