An Article from Hunger-Free Minnesota: The Pine River-Backus Family Center, with the help of a Hunger-Free Minnesota grant, evaluated their current food shelf services to learn more about what else could be done to fill the missing meal gap. Utilizing the Community Close-Up data, Pine River-Backus gained valuable insight into their current role and potential impact.

With a mission of “strengthening families and building a strong community,” Pine River-Backus Family Center has been in operation since 1996. In their 18 years they have established themselves as a hub of activity that has proven to be an effective way to bring together community members and help them reach their full potential.
