Northeast Food Drive
The Celebrate Northeast Parade and Mission Northeast are joining together to collect nonperishable food items and financial contributions for community food shelves in Northeast Minneapolis. All proceeds benefit Little Kitchen Food Shelf, East Side Neigborhood Services Senior Food Shelf and Salvation Army/NEED.
This event marks the first community-wide food drive in Northeast Minneapolis, and businesses throughout the Northeast community are joining the collection efforts by offering donation bins at their location. These businesses include:

Tom's Style and Tanning, 938 Lowry Ave. NE
Central Avenue Liquor, 2538 Central Ave. NE
Liberty Tax, 2406 Central Ave. NE

Collection at participating businesses will run from June 10 - June 21. Members of Mission Northeast churches will also be collecting items along the parade route during the Celebrate Northeast Parade on June 18.
