Through our Positive Change program, Mississippi Market shoppers and staff support healthful food access, local agriculture, and nutrition education. When you bring in your own reusable bags, you’ll receive a credit of 10¢ per bag and can choose to either donate it to our Positive Change recipient of the month or use it to save on your shopping trip total. You may also round up your purchases to the next dollar amount for our monthly Positive Change recipients. It may only be a few cents or spare change, but your impact on our community is astounding! Thank you for helping us raise over $11,000 each month for our Positive Change recipients!

St. Paul-based nonprofits are encouraged to apply for our Positive Change Program and are given priority. Recipients are typically organizations with missions pertaining to food access and hunger relief, social and racial justice, and local food system support.

At Mississippi Market’s discretion, the Positive Change recipient calendar may be preempted to raise emergency or disaster relief funds.
