Food Fight: UMN IFC Fights Hunger During COVID-19

Tax deductible
The University of Minnesota Interfraternity Council has organized this fundraiser to support the most vulnerable in our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Second Harvest Heartland supports both Minnesota and western Wisconsin and is a subsidiary of Feeding America Inc., an organization that supports over 200 food banks nationwide.

As the University of Minnesota has shut down in-person instruction, all fraternity events and philanthropies have also been cancelled to due COVID-19. For years, each individual chapter on Minnesota’s campus has held multiple events to raise money for their chosen organization. This year in sight of COVID-19 and its setbacks, Minnesota’s Interfraternity Council has decided to host a campus wide philanthropy instead of holding individual chapter events. Even though students may not be living and studying on campus, the work and service we provide must continue on for the benefit of not only our campus, but our city, our state, and the many organizations we support. 

As the world is struggling during these times from COVID-19, one of the greatest affects has revolved around our country’s food banks. So, this spring IFC is hosting a fraternity wide philanthropy for Second Harvest Heartland, an organization working to end local hunger.  Our goal is to unify the greek community during these times of separation behind a unified cause. 

Due to the certain nature of Second Harvest Heartland's work and its ability to purchase food at a discount from vendors, and the difficulty of collecting food in person, IFC will be hosting this philanthropy on this GoFundMe page. 

The fraternity community, along with its governing body IFC, is extremely excited to host this fundraiser and are looking  forward to providing an immense impact for an organization providing great services. For this to work, we need to get as much presence and visibility, along with having every individual consider giving to this cause. Outside of financial contributions, we sincerely ask you to share this GoFundMe page with your friends, families, and anyone who would be interested in the work we are doing. Thank you.  ~IFC
