Rounding up at the register with our Change Matters* program is an easy way to make donations. During the month of March all register donations will go to support the MN FoodShare March Campaign.
The Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign is a statewide grassroots effort to stock local food shelves in partnership with Greater Minneapolis Community Connections.
For over three decades, Minnesota FoodShare has coordinated the March Campaign, the largest annual grassroots food and fund drive in the state. It helps to restock 300 food shelves across the state. In 2018, over $8.1 million dollars and 5.5 million pounds of food were raised!
Minnesota FoodShare envisions a Minnesota where all residents have access to healthy food and no one struggles with food insecurity. The March Campaign addresses these issues directly and we invite you to join our efforts and advocate for long-term solutions to food insecurity and poverty in our communities.

This month we’re excited to partner with local company Fizzeology to contribute even more to the MN FoodShare March Campaign. They are generously donating $1 for every pint and $1.50 for every quart of their raw cultured foods sold at the Wedge and Linden Hills Co-op this month!
*Our Change Matters program provides shoppers an opportunity to help local community-enrichment organizations by making small-change donations, which accumulate into a meaningful contribution for the recipient. The recipient changes monthly, with organizations chosen by a committee of Wedge and Linden Hills Co-op staff.
