Press Release ( - FRIDLEY, MN - Nov 02, 2016 - ​​Dentistry for the Entire Family will be collecting canned and dry goods November 1-30, 2016. All donations will be given to Anoka county emergency food shelves.

According to Minnesota Foodshare, One in ten Minnesotans, experience food insecurity on a regular basis. 44% of these families have at least one employed adult residing in the house.

Wednesdays from 7:30am-8:00pm, and on Fridays from 7:30am-4:30pm. Items collected will be donated to Anoka County emergency food shelves.
