March was Food Share Month

“Demand continues to increase, and donations (during March Food Share month) are drastically down” says Karla Rolfzen, Social Services Coordinator at the Salvation Army in St. Cloud. The food and cash donations to the St. Cloud Area Salvation Army during “Food Share” which are maximized through a matching grant from Second Harvest are way behind last year’s donations. After three weeks, or 60 percent of the five week event completed, the Salvation Army has only collected $3,263 in cash and 23,635 pounds of food product, 22 percent and 26 percent respectively. Last year the totals collected at the Corps were more than $15,000 in cash and more than 92,000 pounds of food product. Major Lee Morrison, head of the local Corps added, “We never lose hope. The good people in the St. Cloud area have always increased supporting the Salvation Army, especially when the need is the greatest.”
