Chowgirls prepares meals to feed people during the COVID-19 pandemic

How are you following government safety protocols?

Non-essential visitors and delivery personnel are not permitted in the building to keep staff and volunteers safe. Chowgirls follows a strict sanitation procedure for all food, supplies and people entering the building.

How are you supporting the community right now?

Chowgirls is utilizing their resources and expertise to contribute to Minnesota Central Kitchen (MCK), a collaboration between Chowgirls, Second Harvest Heartland and Loaves & Fishes. MCK’s goal is to provide nourishing meals for their neighbors in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the first two weeks of MCK operations, they provided employment for more than 50 people, rescued perishable food from almost 50 restaurants, food suppliers and other organizations, and prepared thousands of meals to feed the community. This effort allows Chowgirls to keep working with their staff, volunteers, and partners to continue feeding people.
