Give to the Max Day Results

We are able to donate nearly $500 to Midwest Food Connection from Give to the Max Day. Thanks to all who donated!

In addition to collecting funds for Midwest Food Connection through our Eco Stamp program this month, we also collected round-up donations for the organization on Give to the Max Day. Midwest Food Connection teaches lessons in elementary classrooms about sustainable agriculture and healthy foods.

Give to the Max Day - November 14 – is the day each year when Minnesota non-profits are able to get matching funds for donations during this state-wide campaign.  It’s an opportunity for your donations to go further and make a bigger difference!

Last year, Mississippi Market member-owners, shoppers and staff donated $632 to Midwest Food Connection on Give to the Max Day. Let’s hear it for cooperation!

Donations to this and other non-profits are also be accepted at www.givemn.org.
