Greater Nicollet Community coming together in this time of need

Nicollet Food Program

Community support is more important than ever!  Several Nicollet groups are pulling together to offer free meals for children and adults at the Nicollet Legion, with the need growing every day. This program is available seven days per week. ProGrowth Bank has put forward a $5000 Challenge Grant for this essential program.  The Greater Nicollet Area Community Foundation is the fiscal agent for this effort.

We are now accepting donations to match the Bank’s grant!  Donations can be made by either: 1) mailing a check to GNACF at Box 416, Nicollet, 2) drop a check at either the Legion or ProGrowth Bank made out to GNACF, 3) use the Donate (PayPal) button on our website at www.investinnicollet.org. Let’s see how quickly we can match ProGrowth’s generous offer!

Children:  All children under the age of 18 are eligible for school breakfast and lunches.  Trinity and Immanuel, and Nicollet Public School students are all eligible.  Participation in the program ensures students have a balanced meal to help them continue learning from home.  The school is encouraging all students to participate in order to maintain the public funding.

Adults:  The food program is intended for everyone who has a need – no questions asked. Breakfast and lunch are available.

Please take advantage of this program by calling the contacts below to request your meals.  Any request made before noon can start the same day.  Requests received after noon will start the next day.  Pickups will be available at the Nicollet American Legion from 5:30pm – 6:30pm daily.  Delivery is available as well.  For more information or to participate in the food program, please call any of the following numbers:
