Incarnation partners with the Ralph Reeder Food Shelf, 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 food shelf at any time. To donate food and other household supplies, simply place them in the food shelf bin which is located in the Atrium (near the nursery). Throughout the year, Incarnation has various special drives for the food shelf:
- 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.
Ralph Reeder Greeters
The Ralph Reeder Food Shelf is in need of greeters. Openings are available Monday – Friday daytime hours, two hours at a time, and Ralph Reeder is seeking people who can commit to a two hour shift/week, ongoing. Greeters are responsible for welcoming visitors, providing direction and information, and helping with donations. If interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tons of Love!
Tons of Love = tons for food for our neighbors! 8015 pounds of food and $5,220.56 was collected during Incarnation’s July 2016 Tons of Love project. Your generosity was an amazing blessing to those families in this community who may often be hungry. Incarnation will hold another Tons of Love food drive again in July 2017 and encourages you to participate! More information will come as the event approaches.
