At the co-op, we believe in building a strong, equitable food system for all and are proud to partner with local organizations who share the same mission. We wouldn’t be able to support our community without the support of our owners and shoppers. Together, we’re building a strong community. Below are a few words of gratitude from some of our partners.
LOWRY HILL EAST NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION
“We have been serving about 70 households every two weeks throughout 2021.”
The Lowry Hill East Neighborhood has greatly benefited from our relationship with TCCP. With our arrangement to purchase food from Co-op Partners Warehouse (CPW) at a discount, we are able to provide a full bag of produce to all our recipients. This past summer they enjoyed fresh fruits, berries and vegetables on a regular basis.
DU NORD FOUNDATION COMMUNITY MARKET
“In October of last year, we served 519 families a total of 25,597 pounds of food. Broken down, that is 2,438 individuals, of which 49% are children.”
Our partnership with CPW, along with the regular donations from the Wedge and Linden Hills Co-op through the yard sign program, has allowed us to offer culturally connected and diet-specific foods that we would otherwise not be able to offer through our regular food sourcing options.
“TCCP has helped us continue providing 6,000-8,000 pounds of free organic food per week to our neighbors who need it more than ever during the pandemic.”
Sisters’ Camelot is so grateful for our partnership with Twin Cities Co-op Partners! The donations from the Change Matters grant are being used to buy a truck so we can continue this work long into the future, food donations from the warehouse are distributed twice a week in the community, and a supply of compostable products from the Wedge Table aided us in serving many meals from our kitchen bus this year. Working together, we can nourish our community and ensure access to healthful food for all.
