Over 500,000 Minnesotans are food insecure on a regular basis: children going to school hungry, seniors skipping meals to afford medications, and parents who skip meals so their children can eat. 

Every March, churches across Minnesota come together in the Minnesota FoodShare to give big, donating food and resources to help reduce – or even end – hunger in Minnesota.

Bethlehem is working with our local food shelf Community Emergency Service (CES) to make a difference.  Here are some ways you can help: 

    • Bring a bag of non-perishable groceries to Bethlehem’s Minneapolis campus, to one of the carts in the Gallery.  Canned or boxed items are best.  Please avoid glass containers and please check expiration dates on food items.
    • Make a check out to “Bethlehem Lutheran,” note “CES” on the memo line and place in the offering plate.
    • Pray for the work of CES and those who are served
    • Volunteer to work at CES on Saturday, March 24th from 10:00am to 12 noon to sort food.
