SVdP received funding from Open Your Heart for a new freezer to deliver perishable foods to 20+ local food shelves, providing their neighbors in need with much-needed access to fresh perishable foods that support healthy diets.
SVdP was founded in 1856 and is the oldest non-profit in Minnesota. They operate thrift stores, food banks and free stores, and offer home visit outreach to support the poor. Vinnie’s Hope, the food bank run out of their Minneapolis distribution center, has distributed 8.36 million pounds of food to those who are hungry and in need since its opening in 2015. Thank you SVdP Twin Cities for the incredible work that you do in our community!
