Feed the Bear – Help us celebrate 40 years of the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf

It has been our honor to serve this community for 40 years. Since 1977, the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf has been a staple of the White Bear Community, providing food and support to thousands in need. Our monthly choice model allows neighbors to shop for the food their families need in a safe, welcoming and judgement free environment. Our resource support program helps neighbors connect with the resources in our community that can help them through a time of transition and hardship. The White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf serves as a critical resource of food and support for those experiencing hunger in our community, serving as many as 590 families on any given month.  In 2016, the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf provided the equivalent of 633,105 meals to 3,420 individuals, an increase of 15% over 2015.  Almost 50% of whom are children.

On  Friday, March 24, 2017, we will be celebrating this landmark anniversary with a dinner and live auction. We hope you will join us. 

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Please consider sponsoring this event and helping the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf serve those in need for many years to come.  All funds raised from this event will help increase access to healthy food for all our neighbors in the White Bear Area. Feed the Bear and fight hunger in your community.
