Public Packing Events: The Sheridan Story

March 7, 2018

in Age Groups, Ages 12 and under, Ages 12+, Ages 16+, Ages 18+, Homeless and Hunger Needs


Over 200,000 children in the state of Minnesota live in food insecurity and do not always know if they will receive their next meal. The Sheridan Story’s purpose is to respond to this need by closing the weekend food gap between Friday and Monday, when children are not able to participate in the free or reduced meal programs at school.

We are an ever-growing network of weekend food programs, commonly called backpack programs, operating in multiple schools. Our organizational model is unique in that The Sheridan Story provides logistical expertise and project execution while leveraging community partnerships for funding and volunteers.

We work right here in Minnesota. Most of our work is in the Twin Cities area, but we work in greater Minnesota, as well!

Help fight child hunger by packing bags with our five food categories! This fast two-hour volunteer shift will leave you feeling like you made a big impact on your local community (closed to shoes please).
