March is FoodShare Month

March is designated as FoodShare Month in Minnesota. Many churches, organizations, businesses, and individuals throughout the state participate in this large grassroots campaign. Currently the need for food shelf donations is great. Since the start of the pandemic, the number of families facing food insecurity keeps increasing, and in many areas, food shelf use has more than doubled. The FoodShare program provides matching funds to area food shelves for donations collected during the month of March.

RPUCC supports the NorthPoint and PRISM food shelves. The more donations we collect during March, the more matching dollars these organizations will be eligible to receive. Financial donations are encouraged during FoodShare. Food shelves can stretch cash donations further than food donations, because of their access to discount products and programs. These donations are often matched during FoodShare month.

Ways to donate:

  • drop your coins into the offering plate

  • place coins, bills, or checks into the designated bucket at worship

  • place coins, bills, or checks into the designated basket at the Lenten Soup Suppers

  • mail or drop off a check at church. Please make the checks out to RPUCC and put “Loose Change FoodShare” in the memo field.

  • online donations, go to, click on “Donate”, under “PRISM/NorthPoint” click on “Give Now”.

Designated financial donations and non-perishable food and supplies donations will be accepted through April 2.

Items most needed by NorthPoint and PRISM food shelves are:

• Flour

• Sugar

• Cooking oil

• Pancake Mix and syrup

• Pasta and pasta sauce

All items must be in their original packing, unopened, and not past their “use by” or “best by” dates. We cannot accept items that need refrigeration or are frozen. Place items in the grocery carts outside the church office. Questions? Contact Diane Amundson or Dianne Star. Thank you for your continued support!
