How We Distribute

Every month, East Side Elders serves community members in need with free groceries, delivered by friendly volunteers. And we make it easy for folks to sign up. Help us continue this much needed program into next year by donating food today or by helping us raise funds on GiveMN.  We hope to raise $4,000 during the Give to the Max early giving and the big giving day on November 18th.  Help us reach our lofty goal!
