Join us on Sunday, July 22nd, for the July Food Drive!

Items most needed: oil, sugar, flour, canned tuna, canned chicken,
fruit, soups, chili, and mac & cheese. 

Food and monetary donations will go to VEAP at the Minneapolis campus,
and Bountiful Baskets at the West campus.

Have you ever forgotten your donation for the food drive the morning of?

We have a solution for you! At Minneapolis campus, we will be partnering with Urban Ventures to have their "farmers market" food truck on site. Urban Ventures is a non-profit located in South Minneapolis, one of their many programs is CityKid Farms.  The food for the farmers market truck is grown right off of the Greenway in Minneapolis, and "100% of proceeds from CityKid Markets fuels Urban Ventures' programs. Plus, your purchase gives teens a first job experience and allows for people in USDA Food Deserts to have access to fresh, pesticide-free produce."
To learn more visit their website: urbanventures.org

You will be able to purchase fresh produce at market price to then put right back into the Food Drive. You will also have the opportunity to purchase produce to take home for yourself.

We will, of course, still accept non-perishable food!

God's Call:
Matthew 25:35-40 "for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”

How can you help if you cannot bring your donations on
