April SEED recipient: Harvest for the Hungry
Through Harvest for the Hungry, The Food Group partners with local Community Supported Agriculture farms (CSAs) in Minnesota and Wisconsin to purchase fresh and quality produce and then distribute that produce to hungry individuals and families through local food shelf partners.
So far this month, 28,784 customers have donated $12,968 to The Food Group!
For more than 40 years, Seward Co-op has been committed to giving back to our community. In 2011, we introduced SEED, a new way for customers to participate in this commitment. This simple yet powerful community giving program allows customers to “round-up” their grocery bill for recipient organizations that share our commitment to a healthy community.
