Lake Street Food Giveaway – April 2021


We had our first Lake Street Food Giveaway of the year on April 17th. We were blessed with an absolutely beautiful day in Minneapolis as we gave out over 20 tons of free groceries to over 275 families. We had an incredible team of volunteers preparing the groceries, setting up and tearing down tents and tables, loading up food in people’s cars, and offering hope and opportunities to a hurting community.


We want to thank all those who volunteered and donated to make this day a reality. We want to especially thank Sea Foam (corporate sponsor), Warners’ Stellian for providing large box trucks, Second Harvest and Hosanna Church for providing delicious food, City Church for providing traffic cones and the best volunteers, Papa Bear Preach (Todd Finney) for bringing the uplifting tunes, Wooddale Church for printing all the signs, the U of M Chi Psi Fraternity for all your help, Hope Community Church for getting the word out and helping out, and the Bad Waitress for the delicious coffee! We had so much help from some of the best people in all of Minnesota. THANK YOU!


After a difficult and traumatic 2020, South Minneapolis is in the midst of needing to rebuilt and restore. That is why Source is dedicated to serving the Lake Street corridor and creating a network of supporters to make a significant impact on how South Minneapolis recovers and rebuilds.
