Friday Facts: In honor of National Dog Biscuit Day (it's true!), we're highlighting that we welcome donations of pet food which we distribute (for free, just like all our food) through our Food Shelf. Thinking about how to support the Feed a Family campaign coming in March? Consider a donation of pet food along with the human food! When a family needs food, it's likely their four legged friends do as well. #fridayfacts #valleyoutreach #nationaldogbiscuitday #foodshelf
From the Shelves: horned melon and dragon fruit, naturally! These unique foods may require a little google help, but give them a try! Horned melon waffles anyone? Dragon fruit salad? Happy Eating! #fromtheshelves #hornedmelon #dragonfruit #foodshelf #valleyoutreach
Our Executive Director Tracy is presenting right now in The Geography of Poverty - Shared Fate and Local Response through the St. Croix Valley Foundation’s Conversations of the Valley luncheon.
Why Valley Outreach? Volunteer Steve was recruited through his church. He helps folks shop in the food shelf and delivers food through our Mobile Choice program. I really like delivering food to folks. It's nice to visit with them! Thanks Scott. We're guessing they truly enjoy chatting with you as they get their free food from our food shelf as well! Join Scott and hundreds more as a volunteer! #whyVO #volunteer #mobilechoice #valleyoutreach

Tracy, our Executive Director, has been lighting a fire under all of us for four years, continually encouraging, guiding, motivating, and pushing us forward. Her leadership has made us the welcoming organization we are today. She believes we can and should do more, and do it better, so we do. Thank you. #workiversary #valleyoutreach #leadership #executivedirector
Why Valley Outreach? Volunteer Peg spends her time in the Clothing Closet, sorting and helping shop with clients. After I retired I wanted to help in our community and find something to do. I like what Valley Outreach stands for and what they do for the community! I've been here since 2013 and love working with all the other volunteers! Thanks, Peg, we love having your dedicated support! Join Peg and hundreds of others, apply to be a volunteer in our Clothing Closet! #WHYVO #clothingcloset #volunteer #valleyoutreach
