ST. CLOUD — Serving over 2,000 families a month, Catholic Charities are having a hard time keeping food on the shelves.

After receiving donations over the holidays, local food shelves are trying to get prepared for the busy season during Minnesota Food Share Month.

Kathryn Stolpman is the Manager at Catholic Charities in St. Cloud. She says all donations collected will be matched this month.

“Any food shelf participating in Minnesota Food Share Month, the donations are eligible to become part of a match,” says Stolpman.

Catholic Charities has about 40 programs and 600 employees throughout the state.

Program Coordinator Chad Kaushagen says the volunteers they have are important to what they do.

“We have a great group of volunteers that step up, give us extra hours, and are prepared. They know what they are doing,” says Kaushagen.

Catholic Charities collects all types of food, clothing and money donations.

Stolpman says they will hold a city wide “Pack the Porch” food drive at Pioneer Place and St. Cloud Hyundai on March 21st.

“On Friday March 21st, if you want to drop off a donation there between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. we will come to your car and pick it up,” says Stolpman.

Catholic Charities is located behind Tenvoorde Ford.
