With support from our generous donors, Open Your Heart provided SACA with funding toward a new freezer to ensure that SACA is able to meet the increased demand for its food security services and increase its capacity to provide low-income
clients with refrigerated food, such as fresh meat and other protein sources. SACA’s mission is to provide food
and resources to those in need while empowering dignity and independence to those they serve in the community. SACA is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit food shelf located in Columbia Heights. SACA has been serving the communities of Columbia Heights, Hilltop, Fridley, Spring Lake Park, and NE Minneapolis for 44 years. Using the Client Choice food shelf model, they serve an average of 1,400 in crisis families (an average of 3,400 people), giving out almost 58,000 pounds of food monthly.
Due to COVID-19, these numbers are increasing rapidly. They remain committed to our mission and are thankful
for their community of supporters.
