Mississippi Market’s EcoStamp recipient for March is the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign. Help us reach our goal of raising 23,000 dollars/lbs of food to share with these St. Paul food shelves – Keystone Community Services, SPACC – Dept of Indian Work, Neighborhood House & Hallie Q. Brown food shelf.
At the co-op, we help people stretch financial assistance programs by offering a 10% discount to those who are enrolled in our LIME program and our newly added Essentials program helps everyone find products at an extra-low price. And, each year we rally together with businesses across the state to raise food and money for our local food shelves as part of the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign.
When food shelves receive monetary donations they can really make the money stretch. For instance, $20 can feed a family of 4 for 5 days. In addition to making monetary donations at our registers, we also welcome non-perishable food and paper goods that we will pass along to the food shelves.
Working together, we believe we can make an even bigger impact this year!
