March Eco-Stamp: MN FoodShare

Choose to donate 5¢ when you bring in your own bag, round up, or donate at our registers when you pay for your groceries to aid neighborhood food shelves.

Mississippi Market’s EcoStamp recipient for March is the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign. Help us reach our goal of raising 24,000 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.

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.

Food co-ops across the state will be running similar campaigns for their communities. Last year, Minnesota food co-ops ranked #1 in the state for Employee/Consumer Campaigns, with a total of 100,748 dollars/pounds of food donated by co-op shoppers statewide. Working together, we believe we can make an even bigger impact this year!
