Do Something About Hunger
The Hunger Half invites people to walk 13.1 miles through the month of February and raise $131 ($10 per mile) – enough to provide a hungry kid with food on the weekends for an entire school year.

Child Hunger in MN
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 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.
The Sheridan Story is an ever-growing network of weekend food programs, commonly called backpack programs, operating in multiple schools. Its organizational model is unique in that it provides logistical expertise and project execution while leveraging community partnerships for funding and volunteers.
The Sheridan Story works right here locally in many school districts - in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Apple Valley - Rosemount - Eagan, Anoka-Hennepin, Columbia Heights, St. Anthony, Bloomington, Westonka, Wayzata, Richfield, and more.
