Urgent Need from MN Food Shelves – Gov. Tim Walz and others tell us that food insecurity is as bad as it has been since the Great Depression. “One in eight Minnesotans is struggling to put food on the table as we face a pandemic and its impact on our economy.” Children are especially vulnerable to food insecurity, as FUS member Carol Koepp reminds us. When children experience the trauma of hunger and economic deprivation, they are also likely to witness an increased level of violence in their homes. Carol volunteers at the VEAP Food Pantry in Bloomington. She encourages all at FUS to donate time and treasure to food shelves in our communities, to get involved at the local level.
