CEAP Community Challenge: March of a Million Meals

Did you know that CEAP shares about 500,000 meals with our community each month through our Food Market, Meals on Wheels, senior grocery delivery, and other food assistance programs?

The CEAP Community Challenge: March of a Million Meals is our way of putting a fun and competitive spin on March FoodShare, a tradition for food shelves through Minnesota. This “March of a Million Meals”, lend a hand of support to share those meals this month while funding them for the next!

Our goal is to raise $200,000 and 150,000 pounds of food, which will support one month of CEAP food assistance program. From February 27-April 9, Minnesota FoodShare provides a proportional match for every pound of food or dollar donated to CEAP as part of the March FoodShare campaign. 

You can take on the CEAP Community Challenge and help us share a million meals with our neighbors by volunteering, donating, collecting food or funds, and more! Learn more by downloading your customized Action Kit below:
