Image for Increasing Food Access in the Twin Cities

Tuesday, March 26  |  6:30-8:00 p.m.  |  Wedge Table

This is a free event! A donation of one non-perishable food item per guest attending is suggested.

Join your Twin Cities co-op community at the Wedge Table in south Minneapolis to learn what local organizations are doing to increase food access for those who need it most. Plus, discover how you and your co-op fight hunger during the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign, an annual grassroots effort that provides food, funds, and educational materials to over 300 food shelves across the state.

Each participating food co-op has invited a panelist from one of their respective food access partners. Andrea, a representative from the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign, will moderate the panel discussion.
