This February 28 – April 10, 2022 join CAPI in our efforts to fight food insecurity in the state of Minnesota.
In 2021, the projected food insecurity rate was 8.6% in Minnesota, up from 7.7% in 2019.
Why is the March Campaign Important?
In 2020, we all thought within a few short weeks everything would return to normal. Within the year, our food shelf went from serving 3,000 to 10,000 individuals. We were able to meet this need with the help of individuals, companies/organizations, and foundations who invested in CAPI and the work that we do. Fast forward to the present and the need is still here making it critical to focus on a more just and equitable food system that meets the needs of all Minnesotans.
Help Us Fight Food Insecurity!
Access to nourishing food is a basic human right. You can help us provide culturally-specific food to your neighbors by hosting a food drive or by donating monetarily to our food shelf. To host a food drive, find info here or contact Monique Hernandez to get organized. CAPI is also helping to resettle 250 Afghani evacuee families over the next several months.

You can donate monetarily at the link below and then tell others why you support CAPI and encourage them to support us during our campaign. We believe the best is yet to come and are hopeful for the year ahead!
