A bill to help Minnesota’s food banks is making its way through the Minnesota Legislature.
Sen. Jim Vickerman, DFL-Tracy, wants to establish the Feeding Minnesota Task Force to bring together leader from the agriculture community to find ways to best help food banks around Minnesota.
“Our food shelves are having a difficult time keeping up with demand, and I think the agriculture community can help,” Vickerman said. “There is harvested food that is not sold and goes to waste. We need to find a way to get that food to the people that need it the most.”
