As many of you know, we feed people at Lake George every day from 11am to 1pm. We were serving 20 people per day at the Lincoln Center before it closed for remodeling. At Lake George the number of folks needing food runs between 60-75 per day. On Friday, the encampment that was located by the St. Germain bridge moved to the Lincoln Center yard and we now have 20 people there that need to eat. This has exhausted the funds we had budgeted for food, and we are now depending on donations only.
We need individually packaged food: chips, granola bars, fruit cups, pudding cups, ramen, tuna packets, canned pasta with pull tab tops, bananas, oranges, mac and cheese cups, beef sticks, individual cereal boxes, water, juice boxes, nuts, and peanut butter. Could you please pick up some of these items the next time you grocery shop and drop them off at Lake George by the fountain in the NE corner or at Lincoln Center 630 Lincoln Ave SE.
If it is easier for you, you can email a check to PO Box 475, St. Cloud, MN 56302 or contribute online at homelesshelpinghomeless.org. Most of those we feed are on the street in desperate conditions. While food is available at other shelters most of our people are unable to go there for mental health, addiction, or legal reasons. Please help! No homemade food, please.
