March is Minnesota FoodShare Month
Area food shelves are gearing up for one of the biggest donation drives of the year.
Minnesota FoodShare Month, taking place during March, is a statewide effort to raise money and food for food shelves throughout the state.
"It's the biggest time for us to ask for donations," said Connie Warner, treasurer of the New York Mills Food Shelf.
Food shelves will get extra money based on local donations, Warner said.
