Across Minnesota, demand at food banks has more than tripled and a coin shortage persists. But together, we can help.
Donate your coins at a participating Affinity Plus branch, and we’ll match up to a grand total of $25,000 for local food banks.
Your matched donations will go to 1 of these 5 food banks, depending on your community: Second Harvest Heartland,
Channel One Food Bank, Second Harvest North Central Food Bank, Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, and North Country Food Bank.

$11,650.36 as of 12/11/2020. We’ll match up to $25,000, so let’s keep going!
Donate your coins at any of our 17 participating Affinity Plus branches, and we’ll match your amount for a food bank serving that community. And across all the communities, we’ll match a grand total of $25,000.
All donations will be contactless. Due to recent developments with the ongoing pandemic, coin counting and donation receipts won’t be available.
Branch business hours
Each participating branch will have a collection barrel in the entryway. And you can drop your coins into it anytime during that location’s business hours.
On Curbside Donation Day, bring your coins to the designated spot in participating branches’ parking lots. And we’ll thank the first 50 donors, at each location, with a gift bag from Affinity Plus, Fox 9 and Cub Foods!

Every dollar donated provides 3 meals to Minnesotans experiencing hunger. And coins aren’t the only way you can help.

If you donate to Coins for a Cause, you can get more from it than just knowing you made a difference. Enter a sweepstakes from Fox 9 for a chance at prizes like a Minnesota resort getaway, or a $100 Cub Foods gift card!
