Allina Health recently contributed $2,500 to the United Way St. Croix Valley's Food Resource Center to buy a truckload of food for distribution to food shelves in Pierce and St. Croix counties, including the River Falls Community Food Pantry.

The contribution was recommended by a committee of River Falls Area Hospital employees, many of whom also volunteered to help sort and distribute the food.
