The Bridge is a nonprofit agency that provides food to families and individuals during a time of need. We provide good quality food that has been either donated, purchased from North Country Food Bank or locally.
Our goal is to meet the basic needs of our clients while improving their nutritional well-being. For us to meet our goals, we need your support. The amount of food distributed has been increasing each year as the number of families needing support continues to increase. The face of hunger is not what most people think. In fact, the working poor are the fastest growing group of food shelf clients. 38% of households using food shelves report the family's major source of income is paid employment. (The State of Hunger in Minnesota, Hunger Solutions Minnesota.)
The Bridge relies heavily on the generosity of local lndividuals, churches and businesses and others to supply food for distribution to our clients. In addition monthly shipments of USDA supplied products help supplement the pantry needs.
The dedicated staff and volunteers of The Bridge work hard to make food available on a weekly basis for our clients. The need is clear.
We believe all people experience times of need in life. The Bridge provides a temporary food source for families and individuals, in an environment of respect, caring and optimism.
