In past years, Twin Cities area food co-ops have participated in the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign, a program of the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches that provides funds, food and educational materials to more than 300 food shelves across the state. Last year the 14 Minnesota food co-ops that participated together raised a total of 125,464 lbs./dollars for food shelves across the state!
This year campaign’s collaborative efforts include food co-ops throughout Minnesota. This means that co-ops across the state will be running similar campaigns for their communities, and the food drive will make an even bigger impact on Minnesotans!
All donations made at any of Seward Co-op’s locations will go to the March SEED recipient: Sabathani Community Center. Sabathani provides food, clothing and housing to 26,000 neighborhood residents each year in South Minneapolis. We feed the chronically poor, those on disability or chemical dependent individuals and families. Sabathani Community Center has been providing basic needs services for nearly fifty years.
