Minnesota March Foodshare distributed $500,000 in donations Tuesday to over 300 local foodshelves and the Winona County foodshelves received almost $1,400.
Executive Director Sandra Burke was on hand at a luncheon in Golden Valley to receive a check based on the amount of local March contributions.
Burke said the funds will help the fooshelves meet the ongoing need that has been staying about the same over the summer so far.
A second fund drive is continuing this month where the local foodshelves can share in the $150,000 the "Open Your Hearts to the Hungry" organization will be distributing based on cash donations locally during July.
Burke said the goal is to get $10,000 in cash only in July and so far the donations are at about $3,000.
