Over 200,000 children in the state of Minnesota live in food insecurity and do not always know where they will their next meal will come from. The Sheridan Story’s mission is to respond to this need by closing the weekend food gap between Friday and Monday, when children are not able to participate in the free or reduced meal programs at school. We partner with Cedar Park Elementary, right here in Apple Valley.
