Get Fresh with Second Harvest Heartland!
In July of 2009, Second Harvest Heartland teamed up with the Minneapolis Farmers Market to collect produce from vendors and shoppers during the growing season. The collaboration quickly caught the attention of Market-goers, growers and the media—all of whom recognize the importance of delivering fresh produce to our neighbors in need.
Since then, we've collected 124 tons of fresh produce from donors and growers at the Market, and hope to continue to grow the program...but we need your help.
The Mosaic Company has stepped up in a big way in support of this summer's donation program at the market: they're offering $2,500 gifts for every full volunteer slot during 24 weeks this summer (three shifts per Sunday). That means you can help us raise $7,500 in support of our neighbors in need by offering your time!
But that's not all...
You can help make an even bigger impact by supporting Fellowship of the Fresh with social media activities. The Mosaic Company has also offered a generous $5,000 match for activities completed. It's as easy as $1, $2, $3!
