Match your Food Shelf Donation During the "Open Your Heart Summer Challenge" Grant Period - July and August, 2021

Donate to the Braham Area Food Shelf in July and August and help us to reach our challenge grant goal! The Open Your Heart Summer Challenge Grant aims to boost food shelves in Minnesota when they need it most. During the summer months, food shelf donations are traditionally low. For the thousands of Minnesota families that rely on free breakfast and lunch programs during the school year, the summer makes it difficult for them to secure food. In partnership with Hunger Solutions, Open Your Heart’s Summer Challenge makes it possible for Minnesota food shelves to restock and distribute fresh and frozen foods during this difficult time of year.

100% of donations received during July and August will count toward the match. Click on the button below to donate or mail a check to "Braham Area Food Shelf"; PO Box 245; Braham, MN 55006.
