COVID-19 RESPONSE EFFORTS

A collaborative response partnership between the Edina MealFund, the Edina Education Fund, and Edina Give and Go to purchase and distribute evening meals to families in need.  With community support, we have distributed over 50,000 dinner servings to families since March (numbers as of mid-September 2020).

In partnership with Edina Public Schools, the Edina Resource Center, and the Edina Black Student Union we launched the Rapid Community Response effort to address interrupted access to basic needs and services for Edina Public Schools families in the wake of the events following the killing of George Floyd. The effort delivered foundational needs during challenging times. Together, with community members and district staff, we were able to support over 30 families.
