Bremer Banks Taking Action Against Hunger

Bremer Banks are Taking Action Against Hunger by teaming up with Feeding America Food
Banks in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin to end hunger! For every$5 donated, Feeding America food banks can purchase and distribute $45 worth of food and grocery products to individuals and families in need. 100% of donations collected are distributed to regional and local food banks and food shelves in Bremer communities.

In addition to collecting funds for Feeding America Food Banks, including Second Harvest North Central Food Bank, Bremer employees are participating in hunger relief volunteer opportunities. Today, June 3, four Brainerd/Baxter Bremer staff assisted with MAC & NAPS commodity distribution at the Salvation Army in Brainerd.

Thanks to Bremer for this great effort on behalf of Feeding America Food Banks in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin!
