Whether they are a block away, or on the other side of the world, God urges us to feed those who are hungry. Gloria Dei responds by collecting for our local food shelves, by cooking meals for shelters, by garden shares and by sending financial support. Join us! Hunger outreach efforts offer a unique opportunity to engage and teach your entire family – from the oldest to the youngest children – the importance of helping our local and global communities.
HUNGER OUTREACH PROGRAMS
Gloria Dei gathers groceries regularly for our neighbors who are hungry. We support the following food shelves:
Francis Basket Food Market
Located here in Highland Park, Francis Basket serves over 1,500 individuals in our local neighborhood including many new immigrants. Each year we have a special month-long collection for Francis Basket as part of the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign. You will find large, red containers at our parking lot entrance accepting donations any time.
Keystone Food Shelf
The Keystone Basic Needs Program helps feed the hungry and assists people in crisis in a large service area in Ramsey County — from downtown St. Paul to Roseville, from Little Canada to the Midway and the North End neighborhoods of St. Paul. We do a special collection each year around Thanksgiving to support Keystone Food Shelf.
