Help Provide Fresh Food for our Neighbors in Need

July 5, 2012 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import

Join us this summer as we partner with the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market and Mosaic to collect over 200,000 pounds of fresh, local produce for our hungry neighbors!

The Mosaic Company has stepped up again in a big way in support of this summer's donation program at the market. They will match $1 for each pound of food donated at the farmers market, July 8 - September 20, 2012. Additionally during this time, they will match $10 for each volunteer hour donated at the Minneapolis Farmers Market or Second Harvest Heartland West (Golden Valley)!

You can help by buying an extra bag of produce at the market or by volunteering. To donate food, fill and purchase an extra bag of food from a market vendor and let them know it’s for Second Harvest Heartland. We’ll work with the vendors to get the food collected and sent out into the community through our network of food shelves and other community programs. To volunteer, sign up for a volunteer shift here. Volunteers promote the program to shoppers and support our vendor partners.

Whether you donate an extra bag of food or volunteer with us, you'll make a huge impact on the lives of so many children, working parents or seniors who are in need of a little extra help putting food on the table.
