  • UMN Morris students will go door-to-door collecting donations for the Stevens County Food Shelf on Oct. 31. 
  • Donations will be picked up at the door and can be left in advance. 
  • The food shelf accepts nonperishable food items, unopened hygiene products, and donations by cash/check.

Instead of asking for candy this Halloween, UMN Morris students will go door-to-door collecting donations for the Stevens County Food Shelf: the campus Office of Community Engagement will host its annual Trick or Can event on Wednesday, October 31, from 6-8 p.m.

Those who wish to help are invited to have a donation ready at the door. Donations can be left on the doorstep (marked "Trick or Can".)

The food shelf accepts:

  • nonperishable food items
  • unopened personal hygiene items
  • donations by cash or check (made out to "Stevens County Food Shelf")

The food shelf is in particular need of:

  • healthy soups
  • cereals
  • pastas
  • juices
  • hygiene products: toothpaste, soaps, feminine hygiene products

Last year UMN Morris students gathered 883 pounds of food and more than $400 in donations. This year they hope to do even more: 1,000 pounds of food and $600 in donations.
