The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Food Shelves in Minnesota.

Laird, Janine A.

Distributing donated food to the hungry is a continuing effort of hundreds of volunteers in Minnesota. This operations survey of Minnesota's food shelves in 1989 and again in 1993 showed that food shelves have kept pace with the steadily climbing need for free food. They are increasingly using paid staff as well as volunteers. They strive to reduce people's dependency on free food by offering community gardening, nutrition, menu planning, and financial planning classes as well as connecting people with other social service programs.
