WE FIGHT FOR HEALTH & WELL-BEING
Reduce Hunger and Provide Support
Being healthy is vital for children to grow and develop and for adults to live a full, productive life. United Way is committed to helping individuals with health conditions, disabilities, dependency, and mental illness. Through our partner programs and services, we remove barriers and help people live safe, independent and active lifestyles.
HOW WE HELP
By partnering with LSS Meals on Wheels and the Home Delivered Meals program, United Way of Crookston helps provide hot, nutritious meals to community members who may be housebound, unable to prepare food or simply in need of a hot meal and some human contact.
The Eat United Summer Food Service Program provides healthy, nutrient-dense meals to all youth in the community during the summer months. Adult meals are available for a small fee.

SUPPORT AND CARE
We need care and support at all stages of life. United Way of Crookston knows that caring for those in need can be difficult, confusing and sometimes lonely so programs like LSS Respite and Caregiver Support, Hospice of The Red River Valley and the Benedictine Living Community are invaluable resources for those in need of care and the dedicated caregivers throughout the community.
