We just announced an exciting new project that we are going to engage with this fall as a church. The Difference Project is composed of three parts that will help with food insecurity right here in our community. We want to be a church that exists not just IN the community, but FOR the community. We need you to be involved. Check out this video from Pastor Josh to learn more: https://youtu.be/ZkefYGw7170
Why we are choosing to engage in fighting food insecurity:
Food insecurity amongst children is expected to increase by more than 50 percent through December. This is one of the highest rates for child hunger in Minnesota in decades. http://support.2harvest.org/site/DocServer/Intro_to_McKinsey_Projections_6.22.pdf
1 in 8 Minnesotans is facing hunger. In 2019, it was 1 in 11.
In 2020, food shelves are facing a 65% increase in demand.
