Co-op taking part in food drive

Valley Natural Foods is one of 15 food co-ops across the state taking part this month in the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign, an effort of the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches.

Last year the campaign yielded nearly $100,000 in cash and food for neighborhood food shelves.

Valley Natural Food’s effort is for 360 Communities in Burnsville, serving residents of Dakota County.

The store will charge $5 for food worth $20 or more for the food shelf, thanks to donations from FIG Foods, Mary’s Gone Crackers, Bob’s Red Mill and Annie’s Homegrown. The bags will have soup, crackers, macaroni and cheese and granola cereal.

Other coops involved include Bluff Country, Winona; City Center Market, Cambridge; Cook County Whole Foods Co-op, Grand Marais; Eastside Food, northeast Minneapolis; Just Food, Northfield; Lakewinds Natural Foods, Chanhassen and Minnetonka; Linden Hills, Minneapolis; Mississippi Market, St. Paul; People’s Food, Rochester; River Market Community, Stillwater; Seward, Minneapolis; St. Peter Food, St. Peter; Wedge, Minneapolis, and Whole Foods Co-op, Duluth.
