elem kids bag hunger

The 2021-22 school year is fully up and running. We are excited to announce that this year we will again be taking part in the Mackenthun’s Annual Bag Hunger Food Drive! We will be collecting donations for our local food shelves. There will be boxes in the Elementary Atrium to collect donations. Money donations are also welcome and can be given to the classroom teachers.

Since 2003, Mackenthun’s has worked with local schools, daycare centers, businesses, and their customers to collect over 331,000 pounds of food for the Waconia, SW Carver (NYA), and Watertown Friends for Life food shelves! These donations come at a crucial time when food shelves are preparing for the busy holiday season. This event would not be possible without the support of our wonderful community.

2021 Bag Hunger Event Dates: October 25 - Nov 10, 2021

We want to help the Bag Hunger Food Drive reach their goal of collecting 20,000 pounds of food!
