December, 2011 - The Crookston Area Community Fund (CACF) presented a grant of $1,500 to North Country Food Bank, Inc. The grant was used towards the purchase of a freezer for the recently established food shelf. Susie Novak, Executive Director stated that “as a result of the generosity of a church, North Country has been able to temporarily use the church’s refrigeration and freezer equipment to launch the food shelf. North Country must now acquire its own equipment for long-term use.”
The Crookston Area Community fund is a component fund of the Northwest Minnesota Foundation, a 501 c (3) organization. CACF is committed to enhancing or improving the quality of life for residents and/or visitors of the Crookston area.
