2018 Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign Results

From Hoglund Transportation’s Stuff the Bus, to Monticello Refit’s Flash Mob outside of the food shelf, the Monticello Help Center’s March Campaign has been a huge success in 2018!  The children of Resurrection Church and Pumpkin Patch preschool donated 150 fun-filled birthday  bags for the kids in our community, with cake mix, frosting, candles, decorations, cards, and more!  It was heart-warming to see all of the creative ways this community found to participate! 

And now for the outstanding grand totals for 2018:  Together this community raised $45,732 and 33,577 pounds of food during the March Campaign - a grand combined total of 79,309!  Thanks to you we shattered our last year record total, and exceeded our 2018 goal by 14,000! We are excited to receive the additional funds we will receive from Minnesota Foodshare based on this amazing total. 

Thank you, Gracias, and Merci to everyone in this community who volunteered, donated food and funds, held food drives, and spread the word about the work we do at the Monticello Help Center.  So many businesses, organizations, schools, and individuals came together to make this our best year ever!  Monticello is truly a community who cares.

Areas of Interest

Food Shelf

Our community food shelf helps eligible residents who have limited financial resources receive healthy and nutritious food. This service is available to all ages and races.  


Many of us are lucky enough to be in a position to give financially to organizations we believe in and support. There are many ongoing costs to operating a food shelf.  Please learn more about donating financially.

Clothing Center

Our clothing center provides a place for individuals and families who may be struggling to make ends meet to shop gently used clothing donated by the community. Clothing stocked on a seasonal basis to prepare for the seasons.

Other Ways to Help

There are a variety of ways that you, your group, or organization can help us to eliminate hunger in our community. We are always looking for unique partnerships and opportunities to better serve our clients.  Please call for more information!


As with many nonprofit organizations, we are only as good as our volunteers. We have a wide array of needs within the Monticello Help Center that are met by volunteers like you donating their time and kindness.  

Capital Campaign

We are currently in need of more space. Our space not only limits the number of people we can help, it also eliminates the opportunity for us to store donated fresh foods. Learn how to help us build our new facility!
