Thanks to all Groveland Supporters. Still see @2500 clients a month. Donations down...food costs way up. 2012 is a tough year.
Groveland Food Shelf is made up of two programs. The first (GEFS) is a normal food shelf serving adults and families living in a specific geographic area near downtown Minneapolis. The second program, Groveland Food For Youth (GFFY) serves homeless youth from anywhere in the Twin Cities up to age 23 through a collaboration with Pillsbury House's "Street Survival" program. The food shelf was founded by four local churches in 1974. Since 2003 it has operated as an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation now supported by five church congregations and many community organizations, foundations and corporations.
