Call 651-641-1037 to arrange an appointment to have someone pick up food items from their
home by bicycle (available only for people living in the Hamline Midway neighborhood)
Volunteers are needed to receive food donations and check in participants in the alley-cat race. Benita Warns, Owner of Mr. Michael Recycles Bicycles, said, “There are so many of our neighbors who are struggling financially due to the disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic. Zion Lutheran Church provides food assistance to anyone who shows up at their weekly distribution events. This is our opportunity as a business to share our blessings with our less fortunate neighbors, and to organize a
community effort to reduce food insecurity.”
