MGA Bag hunger campaign

October 23 – November 12

together we can bag hunger

The Minnesota Grocers Association is encouraging consumers statewide to Bag Hunger in their neighborhoods by shopping at participating retailers during the 2023 Bag Hunger Campaign. All food and monetary contributions collected in-store will go to provide much-needed support to local food banks and shelves to benefit hungry Minnesota families.
The Bag Hunger Campaign is a three-way partnership with grocers, vendors, and consumers aimed at increasing donations to Minnesota food shelves. The MGA coordinates the program across the state and has nearly 300 retail participants and 12 vendor partners. Since 2008, the MGA’s hunger campaigns have provided over 43 million meals to families in Minnesota and have set a goal of 1.5 million meals for 2023.
