U.S. Bank Branches Official Dropoff Sites for Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 27, 2006--U.S. Bank branches across the state will become community collection sites for cash and food donations for local food shelves during the 2006 Minnesota FoodShare campaign. Titled "Minnesota Feeds the Hungry," the campaign runs from March 1 through March 31.

"The number of Minnesotans using the food shelves this year is at a record high, and at least half of them are children," said Sue Kainz, campaign coordinator for the March Minnesota FoodShare campaign. "People who want to help out can conveniently drop off a cash or food donation at their local U.S. Bank branch. Items that are needed most include canned fruit juices, hot and dry cereals, canned meats, fish, fruits and vegetables as well as personal care and baby items."

"U.S. Bank is proud to partner with Minnesota FoodShare again this year," said Rick Hartnack, vice chairman of consumer banking at U.S. Bancorp. "Donations made at U.S. Bank branches will remain in the community to support the food shelves in that area. We encourage everyone who can afford to make a cash, food, baby or personal care donation to do so."

Minnesota FoodShare, a program of the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches, directs the March Campaign, the largest food and cash drive in the state. This campaign in 2006 will help restock more than 265 food shelves across Minnesota. Half of all the groceries distributed at Minnesota's food shelves each year come from the March Campaign.
