We’ve raised nearly 5,610 dollars/pounds of food for Minnesota FoodShare’s March Campaign. That’s 187% of our fundraising goal. All together, the Twin Cities food co-ops raised 77, 771 dollars/pounds of food. Way to go!
This spring, to help restock food shelves, Twin Cities natural food co-ops joined Minnesota FoodShare’s March Campaign and pledged to raise 85,000 in combined food pounds and dollars.The total amount raised was 92% of our goal.
Linden Hills Co-op, along with the other ten Twin Cities natural food co-ops, encourages shoppers to donate both money and healthy foods. In addition, the co-op made a $10 donation to FoodShare for each member-owner who joined the co-op in March.
By contributing nutritious, natural and organic foods, participants give those who depend on food shelves healthier options when feeding their families. Shoppers can stop by any Twin Cities natural food co-op to drop off food or dollar donations.
Monetary donations make the biggest impact but if you choose to donate food, consider selecting:
• Whole grain cereals
• Flour (white and whole wheat)
• Canned vegetables
• Dried fruit
• Canned fruit in juice rather than syrup
• Dry or canned milk
• Peanut butter
• Hearty soups like beef or chicken
• Dry roasted nuts
• Dry or canned beans
• Canned tuna, chicken, or salmon
• Dried herbs
• Salad dressing
• Vegetable or olive oil
• Baby food
Donate your dollars at any register, or drop food in the donation box at the front of the store. We accept donations all year round!
