Dear Friend,

Thanks to your incredible generosity and support for the Great Plains Food Bank, we set another record this Giving Hearts Day. In just 24 hours, we were able to raise more than $315,000, which is enough to supply more than 945,000 meals to help those struggling with hunger throughout North Dakota and western Minnesota. This truly is the most generous region on the planet.

February 14, 2019, was the single largest giving day in the history of the Great Plains Food Bank and it is all because of you. We put out the call to support the #36percent of the more than 97,000 individuals we serve each year that are children. Each one of you answered that call and joined in our critically important work of providing valuable food assistance to those in need. And with 96 percent of each dollar donated going directly to providing food assistance, you have placed us as close as we have ever been to solving hunger.

We extend a grateful thank you to all our incredible match partners including AVIE, Inc., Blue Cross Blue Shield North Dakota, Cheesin' For a Reason/Chef's Table/Milkmade, Drekker Brewing Company, Eileen and Robert Hahn, Enterprise Holdings, Family Fare Supermarkets, James and Barbara Johnson, JoAnne Carlblom, KLJ Corporation, Kenneth and Jolene Reynolds, Knapp Oil Corporation, Inc., Lyle and Irene Johnson, Manda and Micah Tweten, Moore Engineering, Pontoppidan Lutheran Church Foundation, Republic National Distributing Company, Rob and Leanne Jordahl Giving Fund, Sammons Financial Group/Midland National, Scheels – Bismarck, Scheels - Grand Forks, Spherion Staffing, The Metallica All Within My Hands Foundation and Zinie Peterson.
