Requesting Donations to continue the mission.
The Community Care N Share Café began 2008 when several individuals recognized a growing local population of individuals in need.

Most food comes from Second Harvest Food Bank located in Grand Rapids and funding is from private donations and grants from the United Way, Essentia Health / St. Joseph Foundation and Crow Wing Power Round-Up Program.
The Care N Share Café is run by volunteers and has served over 100,000 meals since its start in 2008 and they look forward to many years of continued service.
