The mission of Good in the ‘Hood is to influence, inspire, and impact individuals, families, and entire communities for good.
The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in overwhelming financial burdens for many people. Many families with children are struggling to put enough food on the table.
Good in the ‘Hood has experienced a 300% increase in requests for food from individuals, community centers, churches, and schools.
To meet this need, Good in the ‘Hood is stepping up by mobilizing groceries and offering critical food support to over 7,500 people through host sites across the Twin Cities every month. We normally serve an average of 4,500 each month, so this is a significant increase.
The cost to increase our food delivery to meet the growing needs in our community is an additional $14,000 each month.
None of this would be possible without generous donors like you. Would you consider making a gift today help us reach our goal and provide critical groceries for the hungry and hurting in the Twin Cities?
Together, we can change lives, families, and entire communities with simple acts of intentional kindness.
