ABC 6 News is proud to bring the community its Feed the Need campaign for the entire month of March in effort to put a stop to hunger in our region. March is Minnesota FoodShare Month which means non-perishable food and monetary donations help food shelves qualify for additional funding.

As a non-profit organization, Channel One Regional Food Bank depends on the generosity of our partners to help us strengthen food access and build healthy communities. Because of monetary and food donations receved at Channel One, we are able to distribute millions of pounds of food throughout our region in Southeast Minnesota and Western Wisconsin.

The Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign brings together individuals, community organizations, businesses, and faith communities to help nearly 300 food shelves statewide, including the Channel One Food Shelf.
