The March Campaign is an annual event where donations received by The Bridge Community Pantry are partially matched by the State Minnesota Food Share program. Local businesses, area churches, schools, individuals and other organizations all contributed to a successful campaign again this year. According to Leikness "the March Campaign generates nearly 40% of The Bridge Pantry donations for the year; it is a critical time for us".

Service Foods is a good example of how local businesses have supported the effort again this year. Stills stated "I want to thank our customers and employees for supporting the program that is contributing toward a great cause". "People need our help and this is one way we were able to contribute".
