Every year Valley Outreach publishes an Annual Impact Report celebrating the community that powers this organization and sharing the impact for individuals that use our programs.
The 2022/2023 fiscal year report features a message from leadership, stunning program numbers, stories of impact and gratitude for donors and volunteers.
Last year, we served more than 700 households per week in our food shelf. For perspective, in 2013/2014 we served an average of 160 households per week. In 9 years, our weekly service numbers have increased by more than 430%. Valley Outreach isn’t unique in seeing a surge in need. Across Minnesota, 2023 brought another record year of food shelf visits – over 7.5 million (after 5 million in 2022).
In the face of this, we continue to connect with clients and invest in programs that matter to them in service of our mission: We help people move their lives forward through basic needs services and personalized support.
