Annual Report 2015
2015 was a big year for Hunger Solutions Minnesota. We’ve continued our work to build a strong, statewide hunger relief network through collaboration, connecting individuals and organizations to resources, and advocating for strong anti-hunger policies and programs.
Through the recession, we saw the number of Minnesotans in need rise. Today those numbers have stayed high and we’re experiencing a “new normal” level of demand for services. We’re responding by continuing to build the capacity of food shelves and other anti-hunger groups – whether it’s through closer collaborations with state and nonprofit partners, new funding for programs like Mobile Food Shelves and Market Bucks, or answering more calls than ever to the Minnesota Food HelpLine, our state continues to be on the leading edge nationally in responding to the needs of Minnesotans who are hungry.
