I wanted to give you a quick update on an emergency food drive I organized, with support from PROP, the City of Eden Prairie, and the Eden Prairie Community Foundation. On Saturday and Sunday, from 9-11am, we’ll be at the Hennepin Technical College off of Flying Cloud Drive, accepting donations for senior living facilities in south Minneapolis near the 3rd Precinct.
The recent tragedy and ongoing unrest has left them without access to the resources they require. The foods that are most in need right now are non-perishable and pantry staple items like bread, peanut butter, cereal, pasta, canned goods, etc.
We cannot accept any perishable food items due to non-refrigerated storage space. We will not be able to accept any cash donations, but online donations can be made to local food shelves at www.hungersolutions.org or www.2harvest.org.
We will be at the J1 entrance, to the right of the main entrance. Enter on College View Drive, stay straight toward the auditorium, turn right before the main entrance, and the J1 entrance will be on the left side.
