Incarnation partners with the Ralph Reeder Foodshelf, which serves residents in the Mounds View School District. Volunteers sort food and stock shelves at the New Brighton facility. People can donate money or food for the foodshelf at any time. To donate food and other household supplies, simply place them in the foodshelf bin which is located in the Atrium (near the nursery). Throughout the year, Incarnation has various special drives for the foodshelf:
- Operation Christmas Joy collects and distributes toys and food in December.
- During March, Incarnation participates in the statewide Minnesota Foodshare Month.
- During July, Incarnation holds the Tons of Love Summer Food Drive. The goal is to gather several thousand pounds of food and household goods to restock food shelf supplies during a time when stock is dwindling and demand is high.
Tons of Love!
During the 2015 Tons of Love Food Drive Incarnation collected 7,956 lbs of food and household supplies – almost doubling the original goal of 4,000 lbs! Thank you to everyone who contributed to making this year’s Tons of Love event an outstanding success and for your generosity!
