Give the Gift of Time to Food Shelves

Area food shelves need your help for the holidays.

This holiday season, give the gift of your time.

Area food shelves are meeting increased needs, and your time can be a fulfilling present to those who need it most.            

The December issue of Edina Magazine speaks with local food shelf and food bank officials as well as volunteers to see what they have planned for the holidays.

"The need is really out there for volunteers,” says Terri Ellis of Edina. “I encourage people to go out and see what they can do to help.”

The story will provide contact information for food shelves near Edina, but to get you started, call the United Way hotline at 211 or visit the food shelf finder online.
