GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - KARE 11 is partnering with Second Harvest Heartland to help fight hunger and help kids and families get the food they need this summer.
One in six Minnesota kids struggles with hunger and more than 40 percent of K-12 students in Minnesota rely on free or reduced-price meals during the school year, leaving these children in need of replacements over the summer break.
On Thursday June 22 come to the KARE 11 studios in Golden Valley and drop off non-perishable food items from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Let's fill up a truck to fight hunger!
Or if you can't make it you can "Give 11" or whatever amount you can afford to help fight hunger in the Twin Cities. We'll be taking donations all summer to benefit Second Harvest Heartland.
KARE 11 is proud to serve a community that has long been recognized for its commitment to philanthropy and volunteerism. The Give 11 Campaign is designed to make it easy for KARE 11 viewers to come together and financially support non-profit organizations that are responding to some of the most urgent needs facing our local, national and/or global community.
