Hunger isn’t the only epidemic faced by those in need in our region; scarcity of shelter, emergency assistance, and transition assistance are the pillars on which St. Joseph’s Social Care was founded. Emergency assistance and housing needs continue to grow in record numbers while federal funding continues to decrease, which is why we are more committed than ever to serving our brothers and sisters in need. We strive to empower and educate those in the midst of crisis on how to live self-sufficiently and thrive as part of a better community.

No child should have to wonder where their next meal is coming from. During the summer, when kids are out of school, it can be very difficult for low-income families to provide consistent, nutritious meals for their children. St. Joseph’s recognizes this challenge and serves over 19,000 free lunches to local children at several different sites around Grand Forks and East Grand Forks in June, July, and part of August, to ensure that no child goes hungry.
