Second Harvest Senior Nutrition Program Moves to Brooklyn Park

Monday through Friday, seniors over 60 who meet certain income guidelines can go to the Brooklyn Park-based food bank once a month to pick up a box filled with nutritious food.

The box contains things like pasta, juice, canned fruits and veggies, and pet food for all of the animal lovers out there.

Hilary Toren is a Second Harvest volunteer.

“People say this about volunteering, and I think that is definitely true here, that you get back as much as you give,” she said.

It’s Toren’s job to hand out those food boxes for the senior nutrition program (formally known as the Commodity Supplemental Food Program), which officially launched in Brooklyn Park on June 1.

“We’re all in this together, we’re working together,” Toren said. “And also it’s a fun thing to do.”

The program was originally based in Maplewood, serving about 1,500 seniors a month since 2004.

Kumon Math & Reading Center - Medina, MN

My name is Alina Rizvi. I'm honored to be part of our wonderful Minnesota Jamaat. I recently acquired the Kumon Math & Reading Center of Medina. 

Kumon is a supplemental learning program that helps children from preschool through high school develop strong math, reading, and writing skills. The proven Kumon method uses a step by step approach to learning that ensures children advance by ability, not grade. Each worksheet set is one small step more advanced than the previous set.

I am looking forward for our community to explore this opportunity further. We are offering both in person and 100% online zoom classes as well.
