DEMOCRATS CARE!

Join in our Food Drive this month.

 

This February 26th, DFLers across Minnesota are undertaking service projects on the theme of Democrats Care. Here in Clay County, we will be collecting shelf-stable food and personal care items to address the issue of food insecurity on our local college campuses. Those items will be distributed to food shelves on the campuses of MSU Moorhead, MState, and Concordia on or about Saturday, February 26. Please help by purchasing three (one for each campus) of any of the following items next time you go to the grocery store:

  • Granola bars & breakfast bars,

  • Cereal & oatmeal,

  • Milk or unsweetened almond milk in shelf-stable boxes,

  • Peanut butter,

  • Crackers,

  • Deluxe macaroni-and-cheese, or ramen noodles

  • Canned food, preferably with pop-tab openers that don’t require a can opener (beans, meats, fruits and vegetables are all good options),

  • Tuna or chicken packets,

  • Rice and rice dishes,

  • Items from the “international/ethnic foods” aisles,

  • Cooking oil,  

  • Various non-food personal care items (feminine hygiene products, toilet paper, paper towels, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.)

  • Diapers.

  • Tea or instant coffee,

  • Gatorade and other healthy beverages.

Please note: all donated items must be unopened, with their original packaging and labeling.    Food items needing refrigeration will NOT be sought during this drive.

 

Campus food pantries also welcome monetary gifts to help students deal with emergencies. If you prefer to give that way, please make your check out to the college of your choice.

 

You can drop off your donation at the Clay County DFL office at 1424 1st Ave. N. (next door to Junkyard Brewing) at any of these times:

  • Between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on February 21st, 22nd, 24th, or 25th,

  • Between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on February 24th,
